Megan Washington @ the Valley Jazz Festival

The Valley Jazz Festival started on Tuesday night, back this year bigger and better with an infusion of promo and artist dosh from some dedicated fund raising from the folks at Jazz Queensland. I haven’t been down the road to see any of the gigs yet, due to a combination of the end of a lingering virus and the school night issue. But, swearing to stick to soda, lime and bitters, I can’t resist venturing to The Press Club tonight to hear Megan Washington sing. She’s just about the best jazz vocalist I’ve come across for quite some time, and having recently decamped to Melbourne, opportunities to see her in Brisvegas are now much rarer than I’d like. Check out some samples on her myspace and read a review of a previous gig by Kim from the LP archives. There’s an absolute plethora of good things going on through til Sunday, and I’m sure I’ll be checking some more out on the weekend (when perhaps a smidgeon of vodka might be added to my glass!)…

Ps: Melbourne readers might like to know that Megan is playing Bennetts Lane on the 18th of May, 1st of June and 22nd of June before she heads off to Tokyo.

    Is Megan Washington a lesbian?

    I don’t think so, but the gig was great! Nice to note that the Press Club (as it should, given its historic overtones) has installed a smoking room where you can take your drink with – quite a rarity in censorious Queensland now…

    I wish!

    Melbournites should go see her for the jazz versions of Peter Pan and Radiohead.

    Not kidding here…
