Event Details

Jazzgroove is most pleased to host the opening night of the Sydney Conservatorium's Converge Festival. The students were required to collaborate with an established artist, learning a lot and hopefully not being too cheeky. Some of these guys have already performed at Jazzgroove and they will surely be part of our regular program in the coming years.

Bob Barnard is one of the most highly regarded musicians ever to come from Australia. Tonight he will be joined by some of Sydney's young blood. Come down and hear the master swing.

Like a fine wine, the older the improvising musician, the better - Jim Denley. However, one cannot pass up a fresh and sweet batch of Japanese sake, Sam Dobson and Finn Ryan. What will happen when they work together??

Delivering a unique slant on a mix of originals and standards, this exciting dual guitar closer to the opening night of the festival will be sure to leave you on the edge of your seat. Expect lots of free blowing with a bebop tinge.
