Order a round of Jazz with the greatest gift to Australian jazz vocals in the last decade – the legendary Emma Pask.
Legend has it that James Morrison heard a 16-yearold Emma Pask singing with a school ensemble and impressed with her natural ability, immediately invited her to sit in with his own band. Emma survived this baptism of fire and has firmly established herself as one of Australia’s favourite voices in Jazz. Her effortless honest stage presence combined with a powerful vocal ability, leaves audiences spellbound and inspired whenever she takes to the stage. While Emma’s voice and style are unique, and individually her own, her performances are reminiscent of the classic era of jazz, when swing was top of the charts. Emma will delight with her storytelling, swinging jazz standards, upbeat Latin rhythms and original material – all wrapped up with some raucous grooving blues. Accompanied by an expertly assembled trio of jazz luminaries: Kevin Hunt on Piano, Phillip Stack on base and drummer Tim Firth. Get ready for a night of sophisticated jazz under the stars to celebrate Earth Hour. Don’t miss this amazing talent!
