Missed out on tickets to SITG? Or just can’t be bothered to battle the 18 hour drive up to Byron Bay? What ever your reason may be for missing the festival, you can still get a slice of the SITG action sans tent pegs, gumboots and over-priced beer.
Sydney-based pianist Mike Nock performs for the Melbourne Jazz Co-operative in an unusual line-up that dispenses with other rhythm section instruments of bass and drums and interacts with just guitar (Stephen Magnusson) and saxophone (Julien Wilson) and no bass or drums. Nock performs solo the next night at Bennetts Lane.
