Jazz After Hours
On Sunday and Monday nights every week, Fine Music Sydney brings you a special time-of-day. From 10pm till midnight, Jazz After Hours brings you jazz to engage, relax and refresh. An inspired playlist to engage; gentle enough for background; special enough to keep your foot tapping. It won’t send you to sleep, but if it does, that’s ok. A number of presenters will draw you into their world of jazz!
On Sunday, Deborah Evans will celebrate the French national holiday, Bastille Day. French jazz emerged after the first World War, with many Americans settling in Paris and building a strong jazz scene. Being very cosmopolitan, a mixture of styles from different cultures emerged, creating a unique style. A country with at least 22 major jazz festivals.
On Monday, Eddie Bernasconi will feature the first two albums of Banford Marsalis’ Buckshot LeFonque. This was a musical project he started in the 90s after working with Sting, Miles Davis and other musicians. It merged classic jazz with rock, pop, R&B and hip-hop influences.
