Jackie Bornstein Growing up in a musical family with a musical diet heavily laden with big band swing, bebop and modern jazz, Jackie developed an ear for jazz from childhood. As a classically trained child (voice, piano and clarinet), she continued her fondness for jazz, becoming heavily influenced by the big names in modern voice, including Kurt Elling, Dianne Reeves and Dee Dee Bridgewater. Jackie has become a regular at Melbourne’s top jazz venues and festivals with performances at Lido Jazz Room, Bennetts Lane Jazz Club, Bird’s Basement, Paris Cat Jazz Club, Kew Court House, Jazzlab, Melbourne Recital Centre’s Salon , the Melbourne International Jazz Festival and more. She has performed with a selection of Australia’s finest jazz and improv musicians including James Sherlock, Carl Mackey, Philip Rex, Ben Hanlon, Nathan Slater, Andrea Keller, Stephen Magnusson, Mark Fitzgibbon, Angela Davis, Tamara Murphy, Sam Keevers and many others.
“A spellbinding singer and captivating storyteller” – Australian Jazz
Joe Chindamo is a musical polyglot in the line of Bernstein and Previn. He is regularly described as one of the best jazz pianists in the world, although his art transcends jazz, having composed concertos, chamber music and film music. He has an incredible ability to customize anything that comes into his orbit, as evidenced by his work with violinist and duo partner Zoe Black.
He has more facility on the piano than you could ever wish, his energy is boundless, he is always inventive and never settles for the obvious (unless it’s the best). Never ask Joe for an idea unless you’re prepared for an avalanche of creativity, every time… The reason Joe Chindamo stops you when you hear him is his pure love of what he does, a love that sparkles with every note. – James Morrison, master of jazz.
