Ingrid James, award-winning Queensland jazz singer always brings fresh life and inventiveness into jazz and latin standards as well as songs of classic contemporary pop, soul and folk tunes she grew up with – from Carole King, Joni Mitchell to Joe Sample, Grover Washington Jnr, The Beatles….Tonight she will be joined by a highly talented ensemble with Jose McLaughlin (piano/voice), Andrew Shaw(bass), Paul Hudson (drums) and special guest Martha Baartz (tenor/alto saxes).
Ingrid has been described as having “a warm and honeyed voice – like Dianne Reeves, a voice born for jazz.” John Hardaker, Words about Music
“Ingrid James, whose note-perfect delivery and depth of lyrical expression, has elevated her into the elite of Australia’s musical talents.” Steve Robertson, Portland Observer 2012 – CD “Lost My Heart”
Martha Baartz has performed extensively at renowned Australian Jazz Venues and many National and international festivals including The Melbourne Women’s International Jazz Festival, The Brisbane International Jazz Festival, The world famous Glastonbury Festival and The Edinburgh Festival. Martha is also a composer, having recorded three successful albums with another to be released this year, her music is often played on Radio National, Jazz Track. She has performed with Australian Jazz greats such as Sandy Evans, Bob Sedergreen (2008 Don Banks award winner) Andrea Keller (Aria winner) and Renee Geyer.

“…standard is a highlight, with Baartz displaying great finesse and subtlety” (Roger Mitchell, Australian Jazz Blog)
“From hard-driving funk to evocative ballad, from blues to Latin to tango … fastidious and edgy but playful and fun too … full of emotion … “(Leon Gettler, The Age ‘Green Guide’)
