Jazz king Bob Barnard back at The J

HITS from jazz king Bob Barnard's new CD "Just My Luck" will feature at The J on Saturday, November 19.

Bob made the recording earlier this year with Ian Date on electric guitar, Nigel Date on acoustic guitar and Jonathon Swartz on double bass, and he will be joined on stage by Ian, Nigel and Andrew Shaw who will replace Jonathon Swartz on bass.

Describing the recording, Ian said: "It has been my good luck to play music with Bob Barnard since meeting him many years ago.

"The sound of this combo is intimate and conversational -like four blokes sitting around playing cards.

"Bob and I place our bets and show our hands. Nigel Date on acoustic rhythm guitar deals a deck of grooves and Jonathan Zwartz adds his superb double bass playing to the conversation, trumping everything when he solos."

Bob is patron of the Noosa Heads Jazz Club which is hosting the event and, according to club president,

Richard Stevens, Bob's trumpet playing is "notable for his big, rich sound and the ease of his flowing lines.

"This will be Noosa's best night for jazz fans since the Noosa Jazz Party in late August."

The performance is on at The J on Saturday, November 19, from 7.30.

Tickets for members cost $20, while guests are $25.
