The Jessie Gordon Quintet are an award winning group of Australian musicians with a penchant for swing and blues. The band itself has two music awards under its belt (Dirty Blues: The Sinning Edition, 2016 and Jessie Gordon is Ruining Your Night, 2018), and is composed of some of WA’s most prominent jazz musicians. The Quintet features Michael Perkins on drums, Karl Florisson on double bass, Jon Matthews on guitar and Mark Turner on tenor saxophone and guitar.
The band will be heading down to Jazz By the Bay and will be bringing their favourite tunes from the songbooks of the brothers Gershwin, Cole Porter and Jonny Mercer. There may also be a dash of the blues, a smattering of original tunes, a dollop of standards and a light dusting of micro herbs to bring out the flavour.
The Jessie Gordon Trio bring you an intimate afternoon of swing standards, soulful blues and original music. Featuring Jon Matthews on guitar and Karl Florisson on double bass and fronted by Jessie, the trio brings you all the joy of a jazz combo with an extra serving of French swing on the side and two red-heads for double the sun sensitivity. The trio will be swinging through their favourite Gershwin, Porter and Piaf songs, join them for a lazy Saturday session.
Jessie brings her award nominated solo show from Fringe World to the Ellington for one night only! This show blends Jessie's love of live improvised jazz with her passion for words and meaning. Using just a looping pedal and her voice, she creates reimagined jazz standards and a sprinkling of her own original songs. Jessie will also be taking suggestions from the audience for song ideas and themes for the evening. Join her for a night that will be fiercely ad-libbed, recklessly inspired, and wildly unplanned. Tickets available soon from the Ellington Website!
Jessie and Markie return to the Ellington for their favourite show together - Best Friends! Tickets will be available from the Ellington website shortly!
Jessie and Adrian have been performing together for three years in Perth's gypsy swing quintet Sassafras. Join them for a duo evening of Adrian's excellent piano and clarinet stylings, Jessie's questionable ukulele skills and possibly a vocal duet if we give Adrian *just* the right amount of Cab Sav. This dynamic and entertaining duo will delight you with trad tunes, blues numbers, sorrowful ballads and swinging standards. Come for the piano, stay despite the terrible jokes. Tickets available shortly from the Ellington Website!
Jessie joins blues legend Lucky Oceans and Tin Dog alumni Paul Gioia and Bill Lawrie for a bawdy evening of barrelhouse blues!
