the first half of this show is mostly all about esther phillips, and the second half is more chelsea wilson’s own compositions. the show is a whole lotta fun! there’s a bit about the band at the time, and pics, on this page about a show she did on 14 sept 2014.
i don’t see a lot of jazz from australia on dime (or i miss it?)… what i do have are mostly female jazz musicians, including shows from the sydney international women’s jazz festival, and — coming back to chelsea wilson — a 2014 recording from the ‘women of soul’ series that she produces. maybe i’ll give that a listen next, make it a australian soul morning.

original seeder’s comments:
full credit to the band also. i don’t know the names of the individual players otherwise i’d be crediting them on here also. [i’ve identified most of them – pete]
it was a small crowd but a fun show which i’m glad i attended (i was thinking of not going). there were a couple of mistakes/false starts but this didn’t take away from what a very enjoyable show.
