“Tom Burlinson is a true great of Australian jazz, of the stage, and the screen. What a privilege to have his incredible talents here for the Broadbeach Jazz Festival at Jupiters Hotel & Casino,” said Brett.
“To have Ingrid James join him as a special guest is an experience few will ever forget – Ingrid is undoubtedly one of Australia’s most known and applauded jazz voices; what a magical event we are set to witness!”
Tom Burlinson will perform a repertoire inspired by his recent show, “Now We’re Swingin” which is a salute to the masters of jazz. Names that feature in Burlinson’s formidable and inspirational song book include Tony Bennett, Sammy Davis Jr, Nat King Cole, Dean Martin, Bobby Darin and Fran Sinatra, through to numbers made famous by supercool swingers of today – Harry Connick Jr, Michael Bublé and Robbie Williams.
Brisbane-born jazz songstress Ingrid James has performed nationally and around the world at leading jazz festivals and events and regularly releases singles and CDs.
TOM BURLINSON and the Allstar Jazz Band with special guest Ingrid James is on at Jupiters Hotel & Casino on August 15 at 7.30pm. Tickets start at $59, and are on sale here.
