We had a real diverse range of musical instruments this month.  Can’t wait to see what happens in August!

Jazz Notes @ The Treble Clef – Sunday 20th July.

So nice to play as a Duo.  Kevin plays his guitar so beautifully it just makes my flute sound so special.  Last time we played together the comments were incredible.  We had to do something extra special this time – and from all accounts we did!.kevin treble clef

The Treble Clef was suitably filled with a very appreciative audience and we even had some new friends sign up to the Jazz Notes mailing list.  Now they can find out where and when we play next.

Special thank yann treble clefou to my friends and family who always support my musical adventures, and Kevin who puts up with me wanting to play songs that have beautiful lyrics.  Thank you!

Fun with the Bluetone Jazz Band.

Very lucky to get an invite to play with the Bluetone jazz band two days in a row.

We played on Wednesday 16th July for a friendship group in North Balwyn – it was a lovely afternoon of joyous music making.

Then again the following evening at the Ivanhoe Masonic Centre.  The stage was a little squishy – but we’re all frienBluetone Jazz Band Masonic Gig (9)ds so that’s ok!.

At the end of the evening there was an offer of a tour of the lodge, I was very excited to see some of the “special” historical areas at the lodge.  Absolutely beautiful. I certainly felt very lucky.

A great night to help raise funds for the Isabella and Marcus Paediatric Brainstem Tumor Fund.

Jazz Notes supported Jan Blake’s fundraiser along with many other wonderful musicians.

I really enjoyed playing with an augmented Jazz Notes which included: Jan Blake (vocals), Ann Craig (flute), Brett Willis (saxophone and clarinet), Kevin Blazé (guitar), Frank Morgan (bass).

A wonderful fundraising effort. SONY DSC
