Svensson and more
This weekend, ABC Jazz will be at the 2014 Wangaratta Festival of Jazz and Blues, bringing you all the latest with a series of live broadcasts. Jazztrack will air as-per-normal on Saturday evening, and on Sunday, the show will come live from Wangaratta with Mal Stanley presenting the National Jazz Awards from 5pm eastern.
On this episode: the Esbjorn Svensson Trio, otherwise known as E.S.T, made quite an impact at Wang in 2005 on their first visit to Australia, and we will feature a few tunes from that concert. Following this tour, they returned to Australia in 2007 on another tour, and would record their last album in Sydney before Svensson passed away from a diving accident in 2008.
We will also be hearing some other recordings from past festivals, including Bryce Rohde and his trio , Danny Moss with Paul Williamson and a fine duo performance from Joe Chindamo with Jamie Oehlers.
New releases on the show include one from James Farm, the Brisbane trumpeter Dan Quigley and Canadian pianist John Stetch tackling Mozart.
