The Perth International Jazz Festival makes its much anticipated return to the wetland stage for one night only on Friday, 3 June 2016. 

Come and be seduced by the language of Jazz: sometimes intimate, often boisterous, layered with experience and life profoundly lived - it’s found in the act of creating the form itself. Listen to performances by the WA Youth Jazz Orchestra, Jamie Oehlers Quartet with James Muller, and Jessie Gordon. 

WA Youth Jazz Orchestra: 5pm-6pm

WAYJO is Australia’s leading youth jazz orchestra and one of the country’s cultural gems. Its purpose is to engage and challenge emerging musicians (aged 14-25), to inspire them to reach their greatest potential, and to captivate audiences with exceptional performance experiences.

Jamie Oehlers Quartet with James Muller: 6:30pm-7:30pm

Expect hushed ballads to high-speed workouts from this group led by Jamie Oehlers, who was named Australian Jazz Musician of the Year at the Bell Awards (2007) and won the World Saxophone Competition at the Montreux Jazz Festival (2003). He has one foot on the cutting edge of live tenor improvisation and the other knee-deep in tradition and technique. James Muller has recorded 4 CDs under his own name, winning an ARIA Award for Best Jazz Album in 2000. In that same year, James was co-winner of the National Jazz Awards held at the Wangaratta Jazz Festival and in 2001 won two Mo Awards for Best Jazz Instrumentalist and Best Jazz Group.

Jessie Gordon: 8pm-9pm

Sultry, flame-haired Jessie, along with live musical accompaniment, will introduce you to the seedy underbelly of the pop music of the 1930s and 40s, exploring the wonderfully dirty lyrics and double meanings hidden in this classic genre.
