Internet: JazzAffair on Air

Submitted by Editor on Wed, 22/09/2004 - 20:39

Tonight Wednesday 22 from 9 - 10 pm on Cairns FM89.1

A program on Canadian Jazz singer Barbara Blair who will NOT be on air (sorry for the rhyme) but your host will be playing some tracks from her CD and will be talking about her first Australian performances in Port last night, and what an event it was.

Her encore is worth the money and your time - a famous song from a famous vintage film - shot in black and white, and still one of the best! Have a guess! (unfortunately it is not on the CD - can't play it for you - got to hear it in person)

In brief: a class act - stylish - lots of verve - great voice and presence - bringing songs of the "Golden Age of Jazz" to life, those times when music had melodies.
(sounds like I am going to present "Golden Age of Opera" - but in this case - it is justified)

TradJazz with melodies you will remember and have treasured - the best of Gershwin, Cole Porter and Harold Arlen and more.

Just in case you do want to experience and relive the good old golden times in person:

Yungaburra Village Chapel - Market Day Jazz - Saturday 25 at 2pm
(why not go to the markets - have something to eat - and end the morning with "TradJazz at Two")

Cairns Matson Resort ballroom on Sunday 26 at 5pm

Tune in to Cairns FM 89.1 from 9 - 10pm tonight Wednesday 22 from 9 - 10 and always and enjoy this interesting and entertaining hour. Nail the phone number on your fridge - 40 536 891 for a chat on Jazz.
