George Washingmachine - the most entertaining musician we know.  His gypsy swing is infectious, his jazz chords are genius, his comedic timing is perfect.

George will be playing his Stéphane Grappelli style gypsy jazz fiddle with Peter Locke on piano and Craig Scott on double bass - two of the most good-humoured men on the jazz scene.  They'll be pleasing all of the people.

Craig Scott and Brendan Clarke

Double-bassists.  Double double bass.  The gentlemen of the F clef.

It's the last in our explorations of improvising duets, and we're finishing on a low note.  Expect the resonant deep tones and sit back and enjoy the vibrations.

You heard it right folks, it's a duo of double bass.

Possibly Australia's most influential living jazz musican, Judy has taught and performed with generations of performers, helping to create the sound and culture of Sydney's jazz scene.  It's more than two years since they last played for us, and the ABC has just released a 4CD box set of Judy's recording projects.  She will play for us with her long-time trio : Craig Scott on bass and Tim Firth on drums.

STOP PRESS! Tim Firth has injured his arm, so it's another duet!

Two men who have taught and inspired generations of Sydney jazz musicians. Absolute legends, i'm not even going to say more than that.

Probably Australia's most awarded and influential jazz musician.  Over thirty years of pushing boundaries and bringing musicians together, she has helped shape jazz music in australia.
Judy Bailey, Craig Scott, Tim Firth. rare.  exciting.

Craig Scott is one of Sydney’s most amazing Jazz double bass players... and probably the most influential. He is the head of Jazz Studies at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music and has taught most of the musicians who have been through the course in the past 20 years.

For this special duo concert he teams up ex-student Spike Mason on saxophones. Together they will play a collection of songs they love.
