About this event

Award-winning Perth band Sassafras are back with a brand new show of gypsy jazz. The band features Lachlan Gear and Aaron Deacon on gypsy guitars, Pete Jeavons on double bass, Adrian Galante on clarinet, and Jessie Gordon on vocals. Sassafras present a vibrant, acoustic mix of gypsy swing and jazz, all performed with the sensational virtuosity and passion so intrinsic to the tradition of this music.

This dazzling performance will feature new arrangements of jazz standards, beautiful ballads, and fabulous French classics.

Presented by:
Jessie Gordon

Jessie is a very sun-shy Perth red-headed singer and songwriter who brings her love of old world roots music into the 21st Century. She has toured Australia, America, South East Asia, Germany, France, Spain, Poland and the UK. She is also a 20 time Fringe World Music and Cabaret Award winner. Her original music is a combination of soulful blues, harmonic gospel and joyful swinging country.

She has also recorded nine albums, including two with Mark Turner (Best Friends 2019 and Live at Kidogo 2021), an original album (A Work of Friction 2018), two intercontinental albums entitled Berlin Nights (2017) and Unknowable Journey (2020) with Berlin band Ginger Blues, the latter of which won the German Blues Award for 2020, and most recently the eponymous Sassafras (2021).
