International Jazz Day -30th April 2019 – Melbourne, Australia

Share

30th April 2019 – Hamer Hall -Melbourne – International Jazz Day.

Ever since the UNESCO Director-General Audrey Azoulay, and UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador Herbie Hancock announced the programme for the 2019 edition of International Jazz Day, to be launched in Australia and celebrated in more than 190 countries around the world, it was with great anticipation and excitement, that Melbournians  waited  for this ‘invitation only’ event to be held in  (what I would like to call)  the Jazz capital of Australia.  This All-Star Global Concert at Melbourne’s renowned Hamer Hall, was later webcast via YouTube, Facebook, the United Nations and UNESCO to millions of viewers worldwide.

 Waiting in the queue to get my media pass, one could see and sense that feeling of expectation on the faces of Patrons in the foyer, and, as they strode through the doors into the great Hall. As a spectator rather than a photographer, it was an opportunity to listen  to all of the music that would  captivate and engulf an entire audience in  silence to hear, appreciate and applaud this selected array of  world renowned artists.

As the lights dimmed, and the chatter around me slowly  faded into silence, all eyes were on the stage, as  James Morrison and William Barton on the Didgeridoo emerged through the darkness to begin proceedings.

I do not intend to go into the finer detais of the performance,  as, it can be viewed in full  on  Youtube.  Follow the link.

The Cast:  Herbie Hancock (USA) Artistic Co Director with  James Morrison (Australia), Musical Director John Beasley (USA), Cieavash Arian (Iran), William Barton (Australia), Brian Blade (USA), A Bu (China), Igor Butman (Russian Federation), Theo Croker (USA), Joey DeFrancesco (USA), Eli Degibri (Israel), Kurt Elling (USA), James Genus (USA), Paul Grabowsky (Australia), Antonio Hart (USA), Matthew Jodrell (Australia), Aditya Kalyanpur (India), Ledisi (USA), Jane Monheit (USA), James Muller (Australia), Eijiro Nakagawa (Japan), Mark Nightingale (United Kingdom), Jeff Parker (USA), Chico Pinheiro (Brazil), Tineke Postma (Netherlands), Eric Reed (USA), Antonio Sánchez (Mexico), Somi (USA), Ben Williams (USA), Lizz Wright (USA) and Tarek Yamani (Lebanon).
