Virtuosi Tasmania Spirit of the MJQ
Tasmanian Jazz had a real lift when over the April week-end of concerts Virtuosi Tasmania launched its first Jazz CD - Spirit of the MJQ.
A high was the concert at Milton Vineyard, where Bertrand Cadart officially launched the CD as part of the France to Freycinet Festival. A big thank you from our Jazz professionals, Kelly Ottaway, vibraphone, Danial Sulzberger, piano, Matthew Ives, drums and Stephen Martin, double bass, to all who attended our concerts.
