Jason Sandercock, James Morrison's lead trumpeter, brings together 17 of Australia's finest jazz musicians to pay tribute to the Golden Age of big band swing: "An Evening with Ella" featuring Olivia Chindamo.

Olivia, 2016 Bell Award winner for Young Australian Jazz Artist of the Year, will showcase popular songs of Ella Fitzgerald's career, such as; Get Happy!, It Don't Mean A Thing and Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate The Positive, with orchestrations by Nelson Riddle, Billy May and Marty Paich.

Jason is quickly being recognised as one of Australia's most exciting, upcoming lead trumpet players. As a regular to both the Sydney and Melbourne music scenes, Jason has performed with many high profile musicians including James Morrison, Wycliffe Gordon, Kate Ceberano, Sarah McKenzie, and popular shows such as Tom Burlinson's ‘Sinatra at the Sands'.

"The lead trumpet in any band is a chair few people are equipped to occupy - and even fewer do it with consistency. Jason Sandercock is one of those people - he has the gift and understands what it takes to lead from this chair. The fact that he does it so well and with such professionalism makes him the first call when I am putting together a band." - James Morrison, AM

Australian vocalist, Olivia Chindamo is a Melbourne based musician who is best known for her natural and effortless ability to improvise or "scat". She has firmly cemented her place in Australia's flourishing jazz scene and is being recognised internationally for her impressive performances, courageous solos, and fabulous talent.
The pair join together with an all star band to re-create "An Evening with Ella"; sure to get you dancing in your seat (or out of it).
