Jazz musicians play with heart

IT was standing room only at the inaugural Southern Downs Jazz Society (SDJS) event at O’Mahony’s Hotel on Friday night.

Toowoomba Jazz Society (TJS) members showed strong support, bringing close to 20 people to the night of entertainment, while other local artists and bands performed.

TJS president Bill White heaped praise on SDJS founder Terry Gilchrist, saying the night could spark a partnership between the two organisations and possibly pave the way for a “jazz convention” in the future.

“It’s not just about the money for us jazz musicians, it’s about what we can give in jazz from the heart,” Mr White said to the crowd.

The Jazz Aperitif Ensemble led the way on the night with local vocalists Julian Luke and Louise Brosnan, while other artists such as Amy Bonney also performed.
