That standards thang
With the dearth of jazz in Canberra these days, it's a pleasure to catch our best locals when I can. This was just pre-dinner drinks at the National Press Club, but you can always trust there will be decent players and renowned standards. This time it was Wayne Kelly with Greg Stott. Great pairing, easy tunes, Wayne doing his singing thang and a tune written just for the venue, Press Club Boogie (forgive me for I jest). Great playing and a piano with a bit of edgy character. Always a pleasure to hear these guys.
