Page added Feb 28, 2013 Updated Mar 8, 2013

On Jazz Up Late, Gerry Koster features a concert from Trevor Watts and Veryan Weston, recorded at Melbourne's Bennetts Lane Jazz Club.

In 2012 the English improvising duo of saxophonist Trevor Watts and pianist Veryan Weston made its debut Down Under with concerts in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth – and across the Tasman in New Zealand.

Their concert in Melbourne was recorded for Jazz Up Late and is our main feature this week.
About to appear in Australia with concerts at Womadelaide and the Melbourne Recital Centre is the Tunisian composer, vocalist and oudist Dhafer Youssef who mixes music from Arabic traditions with contemporary European jazz. We’ll also hear from him as well as another group which explores the confluence of Middle Eastern music and improvised jazz – Western Australia’s Daramad.

Plus, ambient sounds from The Drowned World – the most recent album from the ensemble 'Motion'.
