Jazz pops up all over, often as a backdrop to our lives. Dollface were at the Fyshwick Market last weekend. There were just two in this incarnation. Alice Cottee singing sweet soprano and Tom Sherringham accompanying chords with a thumbed bass line on guitar. Just in the corner by the cases of tomatoes singing standards. They waylaid me from the bread and pasta I was looking for, but it was a pleasant interlude. Dollface advertises as Jazz, swing and anything. The TripleJ unearthed recognition for her band, NoHausfrau, and 2XX broadcasts suggests an indie sensibility. Alice Cottee (vocals) is Dollface. Tom Sherringham (guitar) accompanied on the day.
