Kekko Fornarelli Trio because there is something unique in the way they play especially when Kekko Fornarelli gets lost in the moment on a piano.

Tim Burton 
I am keen to see Trichotomy (and the Vampires). Love improv and modern jazz fusion!!  I find it interesting that Trichtotomy had previously been known as Misenterpretato. I can see why they changed the name as the latter sounds like a girls vegetable toy. 'Little Misenterpretato Head' perhaps?

Hi, I would love to hear Ernic Watts, i remember going to a jazz club in the Gold Coast when i was 15 with my parents who did not like jazz, I remember how much i enjoyed the event or though did not stay that long as with parents. Now a little older my love for jazz has increased. Listening to ABC Jazz radio is awesome and i often have the station on with guests over for dinner. Going to see Ernie would be great to get to see a live show again and i think it could help my wife to get a more of a understanding of jazz. Thanks Simon

Ernie Watts - I want to enter a euphoric medium by ear, give me some of those crooner smooth vibrations any day. Catapult me into that jazz world; let me sit and sway my body to the musical motions.
