Chet Baker earned much attention and critical praise through the 1950s, particularly for albums featuring his vocals and trumpet (Chet Baker Sings, It Could Happen to You). Jazz historian Dave Gelly described Baker’s early career as “James Dean, Sinatra, and Bix, rolled into one”. Local performer, Simon Drew is not just a jazz vocalist and trumpeter; he’s a storyteller and an artist. His tasteful interpretations of jazz standards have been praised by people all around the globe, and he has gained the reputation of being able to turn jazz-agnostics into jazz-believers through his authentic yet reserved style. Simon has one single goal in every one of his recordings or performances, and that is to have the listener experience something beautiful, real, and different. Although he is only a young artist, Simon has achieved some important milestones including the release of his debut album (Detour Ahead), being accepted into the Generations in Jazz Vocal Scholarship (judged by James Morrison) two years in a row, and performing at many great venues and festivals including the Noosa Jazz Festival, the Broadbeach Jazz Festival, the Brisbane Jazz Club and the Paris Cat Jazz Club. Recently Simon has returned from three contracts onboard the worlds largest cruise ships where he led his own quartet every night in the “Jazz on 4” jazz club. He looks forward to once again sharing his music with Brisbane audiences.
Doors open at 6.30pm. Show starts at 8pm.
