Ella, Dizzy & Buddy

1917. Three giants of jazz enter the world. Ella Fitgerald. Dizzy Gillespie. Bernard “Buddy” Rich.

100 years later, WAYJO will revisit the classics that made these visionaries beloved by jazz fans around the world while leaving an indelible mark on 20th century music.

“A Night in Tunisia”, “A Tisket A Tasket”, “Caravan”, “Night and Day”, and “Manteca” are just some of the songs that have become true jazz standards.

Celebrate with the Tuesday and Wednesday Night Orchestras as they perform the incomparable work of Ella, Dizzy and Buddy.

WAYJO Jazz at the Maj Series: Mat Jodrell

WAYJO alumni Mat Jodrell is one of the superstars of the jazz world.

Since leaving Perth, Mat has become one of the most sought after trumpet players in the world, performing at Carnegie Hall at just 16, on Broadway in the musicals ‘Hair’ and ‘After Midnight’, a lecturer at the Juilliard School of Music and now at the James Morrison Academy of Music.

It’s easier to list the current jazz greats that Mat hasn’t played with than the ones he has, and the Tuesday Night Orchestra are set to produce a dynamic set that will rival any other musical experience you will hear all year.

WAYJO Signature Series: Jazz Under the Stars

WAYJO Jazz Under the Stars

2017 marks Dr Mace Francis’ 10th year as WAYJO Artistic Director, and we want to celebrate the occasion by recognising the contribution Mace has made to WAYJO and the national jazz scene.

As the sun sets at the spectacular Quarry Amphitheatre, the Monday Night Orchestra will get you in the mood presenting a suite of jazz classics, from Basie to Ellington and beyond.

Recognising the work WAYJO does in commissioning emerging composers, the Tuesday Night Orchestra will delve into our back catalogue, showcasing compositions by some of Australia’s finest jazz artists, including pieces from WAYJO alumni.

Once the sun has set more stars of WAYJO will come out to play. Mace Francis will take the stage with the Wednesday Night Orchestra to deliver a collection of his compositions for big band, including an all new commission specifically written for the occasion.

Please join with WAYJO as we celebrate the work Mace has done to develop young artists throughout his career making WAYJO a shining star in jazz with an internationally renowned reputation.
