03 March Saturday – Gregg Arthur: Last Call
$17.00 – $69.00
Saturday 3 March, 2018, 8.30pm
“Some people got it, and some people don’t. Gregg Arthur is one of the ones who does.” John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald, December 2017 (Live performance)
After several years recording and touring in the US with some of the finest musicians and producers in music, Australian singer and songwriter, Gregg Arthur has returned to Australia with critical acclaim.
While Arthur is recognised for his mastery of jazz phrasing and interpreting the standards he is equally at home in adult contemporary mode. His latest release LAST CALL (Fanfare, SONY) is a sensitive mix that sees him shine in both settings, including the title track (an original) that calls out to all those who have lost in love and find themselves alone in a bar late at night.
“Audiences can expect some classics, some originals and some truth. Every lyric of every song has some piece of me in it.” Sophisticated and original, Gregg captivates audiences all over the world performing the music they love in his own unique style. His voice is intimate, his delivery is relaxed and charming and he has a winning air of nonchalance. Iconic musicians sing his praises too, including the late Vincent Falcone, former pianist and conductor for Frank Sinatra, and the “Brush Master” Clayton Cameron, drummer for Tony Bennett and Sammy Davis Jr. Most recently in the US (since 2014), Gregg has been performing and writing with brilliant pianist Tom Ranier, and had a residency with bassist Pat Senatore and his trio at the prestigious Bel Air venue, Vibrato, owned and presented by Grammy award winning trumpeter Herb Alpert.
Now back in Australia, Gregg performs with the country’s best musicians: a seriously cool rhythm section that includes highly respected jazz masters, Peter Locke on piano, Steve Arie on bass, and Andrew Dickeson on drums.
Audiences are invited to come along and find out why Gregg Arthur is unmatched as a singer and performer – leading the legendary Tony Bennett to give him the hand-written note that now resides proudly on Arthur’s wall:
“I love the way you sing. You have a fan in the way you phrase… it’s perfect.” – Tony Bennett (hand-written note)
