One of the most refreshing aspects of modern jazz practice is the way it has become less interested in narrow stylistic conventions and more about the cheerful embrace of great musicianship and song- writing across all genres. In MLIVE’s hotly-anticipated weekend of jazz, Australian legends from one end of the improvised music spectrum meet those at the other: pop, soul and cabaret.
In Spinoff, Vince Jones is joined by one of Australia’s nest vocalists Megan Washington and a 20-piece jazz orchestra. Together they
revisit the sounds of the 1940s as rebooted in the 1990 television series Come In Spinner. The album of the series, featuring classics
like Man I Love, Mood Indigo, Sophisticated Lady, You Go to My Head and I’ve Got You Under My
Skin, broke sales records around the country. This time around, MLIVE has commissioned composer and arranger Steve Newcomb to create all new arrangements in a night that promises to blast fresh and surprising energy into beloved jazz standards.
