Theme & Variations are proud to sponsor the Brisbane Powerhouse which is hosting the 2008 Brisbane Jazz Festival – 31st October to 6th November.
The Brisbane Powerhouse Website says:
This year’s festival is headlined by a string of almighty partnerships. Grammy award winning tenor saxophonist Joe Lovano and master jazz guitarist John Scofield reunite for the first time in 20 years. Legendary Australian pianist Mark Isaacs and Thirsty Merc’s Rai Thistlethwayte join forces to show what jazz piano can become. David Murray, considered the most dexterous and soulful living tenor saxophonist, performs with the Black Saints.
There’s also a strong local flavour with our city’s best artists taking the stage for a fine offering of free entertainment.
Contemporary compositions, cool classics, ethereal melodies, scintillating scats, Brazilian rhythms, bebop, swing and groove-induced tunes – experience the beauty of jazz.
