Jackie Bornstein Quartet

Celebrate with your Valentine (or just a bottle of wine) listening to the richly toned vocals of Jackie Bornstein. Featuring Tim Willis (guitar), Philip Rex (bass) and Hugh Harvey (drums), Jackie will perform tunes taking you to the cool jazz of the 1950s, jazz manouche of Paris, and bossa of Brazil (or possibly just to a chilled bar on High St Northcote). Tickets available online or at the door - $10 entry

Jackie has performed venues in Australia and the UK over the past 15 years. With a particular talent for storytelling through song, Jackie gets to the heart of a tune and imparts a range of emotions through her use of varied vocal timbres.

Growing up with a musical diet heavily laden with big band swing, bebop and modern jazz, Jackie went on to study Jazz Voice Performance at the Victorian College of the Arts and has been strongly influenced by modern vocal greats including Kurt Elling, Dianne Reeves and Dee Dee Bridgewater.

Virtuosic and sought-after double bassist Philip Rex has close to three decades of professional performing and recording experience. A prodigious talent from a young age, Philip has worked with many of the greatest musicians in Australia and overseas including Paul Grabowsky, Doug DeVries, Vince Jones, Johnny Griffin, Jimmy Cobb, Joe Williams, Eddie Henderson and Cindy Blackman.

Currently Melbourne based, Tim studied guitar under Mike Price and George Golla at ANU’s School Of Music. Moving to France in 2005, Tim quickly started playing in Paris’ best known clubs. Tim has toured in Ireland, England, France and Australia and was awarded the 2012 PBS Young Elder of Jazz commission in recognition of his talent for composition.

A versatile drummer firmly entrenched in the Melbourne music scene, Hugh plays regularly with many of Australia’s top jazz musicians. Performing with Leigh Barker and Tom Vincent, Hugh opened for the Branford Marsalis Quartet on their 2010 Oz tour. Hugh was a semi-finalist in the Wangaratta National Jazz Awards and has toured in Australia, Denmark, Norway, Iceland, Scotland and Thailand.
