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.
