Jessica Carlton plays the Music of Kenny Wheeler

July 8, 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Kenny Wheeler was an important and unique voice in jazz as a trumpeter and big band composer. His lyrical and unorthodox style of playing has influenced generations of trumpet players and his albums for big band, including Music For Small and Large Ensembles are considered classics.

This concert showcases two significant Wheeler works, A Long Time Ago Suite and The Sweet Time Suite – featuring trumpeter Jessica Carlton.

Jessica has recently moved to Perth after living and studying in Melbourne and New York. A distinct voice in the Australian jazz scene, Carlton’s lyrical and melodic improvisational style is influenced by Wheeler.

Jessica appears thanks to WAYJO’s 2022 Major Programs Partner, Minderoo Foundation.
