Catching up with jazz

Well, I must admit I have been a bit slack about keeping this blog updated, so I thought it was time to turn over a new leaf and get back onto it.
Tonight, our theme on A Mixed Bag with Chris B, was jazz, because this weekend will be the 36th annual Merimbula Jazz Festival.

If you would like to attend, and need some information, click on the link below:-


You will find links to the program, music videos, and a link to their Facebook page.
It will be a wonderful weekend of sound and colour with jazz music of all genres.

Have a great time in Merimbula!  Enjoy!!

Our program list featured many and varied jazz tunes including the fabulous voices of Ella Fitzgerald, Billy Holiday and Esperanza Spalding.  We heard a few tunes by some of the artists who will be playing at the 2016 Merimbula Jazz Festival - Pam Allen and the Last Mango in Paris (love the name!), Bees Nees, Pippa Wilson, Paul Dion, and someone who won the 2013 Jazz Quest, Kade Brown. A bit of Miles Davis, John Coltrane and Louis Armstrong thrown into the mix, made for one very mixed bag of jazz tonight.

Thanks for listening.

Next week will be a completely different theme - an exploration of Punk music.  Talk about from one extreme to the other!!!
If you live in the Bega Valley, you can tune into 93.7 Edge FM on Tuesday evenings between 6.00 pm and 8.00 pm to hear "A Mixed Bag with Chris B".
