Regulars on the Auckland Jazz scene, the Joe Carbery Swingtet are also a popular attraction at the Bay of Islands Jazz and Blues Festival, where Joe has been honoured with life membership.

The Joe Carbery Swingtet plays in the style of the small groups of the Swing Era but is firmly in the present - "Modern Traditional Swing Music".

Ellington, Basie, Johnny Hodges, Eddie Condon, Louis Armstrong, Louis Jordan, Fats Waller, Louis Prima and Gerry Mulligan are just a few of the influences that may be heard in the music of the Swingtet. The swing repertoire is leavened with Latin American rhythms - what Jelly Roll Morton called "the Spanish tinge."

Founded on a solid rhythm section of pianist John Wilcox, bassist Stuart Lawrence and the Jimmy Gibb on drums, with Joe Carbery on alto & baritone saxophones, clarinet and vocals.

Talented violinist, Aldrich Cecilio, very well received at our August concert, will be joining us as our supporting artist. A student at St John's College, Aldrich can be found most Saturdays at the Frankton Markets where he has attracted a popular following. Aldrich is active in various school bands, cultural groups, the orchestra and the Liturgy musical team.

Do join us for a relaxed afternoon of great music and dancing.

Presented by: Hamilton Jazz Society
