Recipe for Romance Devonport Jazz Gala
Enjoy a sumptuous three-course dinner by Elevated Catering, including a drink on arrival.
Select soloists during dinner will be followed by Ingrid James Quintet’s Recipe for Romance – celebrating a melodically rich and lush romantic program, where you will hear long-forgotten classic melodies from the Great American and Latin Songbooks set to some swinging grooves and romantic Brasilian bossas, boleros and sambas.
Ingrid will be joined by a stellar line-up from all over the country, including Brendan St. Ledger (piano, Qld), Hamish Houston (bass, TAS), Beau Thomas (drums, TAS), and Paul Armstrong (trumpet/flugel horn, NSW/USA).
“Ingrid James is an award-winning Queensland jazz vocalist, voice educator, and recording artist “whose note-perfect delivery and depth of lyrical expression have elevated her into the elite of Australia’s musical talents” (Steve Robertson, Portland Observer).
Ingrid was recently described by John Hardaker from Words about Music as having “found the right point between the hip and the sweet”.
