Oz Manouche – Hot, Gypsy, Jazz

Oz Manouche Artistic Director Ewan MacKenzie

Since 1972 The Brisbane Jazz Club has been a great habitat for serious swingers, and all those who love the cool eclectic mix of music from a genre that defies description, except to say that it is perhaps the coolest music on the planet. Hot, Gypsy Jazz. Sited on the Brisbane river the club is opposite the CBD and members often get their toes well and truly wet when summer rains and storms make it, and the temperatures of those inside rise. But hey that’s cool man. This year from 25th – 27th November Brisbane Jazz Club will host Oz Manouche, Australia’s premiere Manouche Gypsy Jazz Festival, 3 days of concert performances, workshops, master classes, film screenings, merchandise stalls, food, licensed bar, chalkboard performances and endless jamming opportunities! The headline act for 2011 is the one and only Andreas Oberg from Sweden. Andreas is one of the world’s leading Manouche guitar stylists as well as a fine mainstream jazz player. He’s a leading educator in the style also, with an online tutoring school. La Petite Manouche, two young guitarists from Christchurch will also be part of the proceedings.
