Flying high at Wangaratta
Joining Dave Ades on this performance was tenor saxophonist and bass clarinettist Julien Wilson, double-bassist Jonathan Zwartz and recently returned from New York, drummer Danny Fischer. The concert received an overwhelmingly enthusiastic response from both critics and audience alike and Jazz Up Late presents the complete performance this week.

Also on the playlist are selections from recent albums by guitarist Rez Abbasi and saxophonist Matt Bauder, and from the new reissue of Neil Ardley's A Symphony of Amaranths - out of print for almost 40 years and now on CD for the first time - you'll hear Edward Lear's nonsense poem The Dong With The Luminous Nose read by the inimitable Scot, Ivor Cutler.
And, there's more from the improvised duo session by pianists Myra Melford and Alister Spence recorded for Jazz Up Late in the ABC's Eugene Goossens Hall in Sydney.
