22 December – Jo Fabro
Friday 22 December 2017, 8.30pm
“The singing, arrangements, instrumentation and recording have a 1960s rhythm and blues flavour. There are fresh-sounding hooks in each of her tunes that show an impressive understanding of the genre. Anybody can imitate a past style but it takes artistry to work in an established idiom and create something that sounds a bit different.. it’s a more nuanced originality, and it’s this that makes ‘Save My Soul’ extremely listenable”. Jazz Australia
Jo Fabro has been making her mark on the Australian music scene since 2003. A powerful and dynamic vocalist – Jo lends her voice to jazz, soul and blues music with great tenacity and a unique style which is all her own.
Jo is the driving force behind two main music project – JFQ (The Jo Fabro Quintet) which creates contemporary Australian jazz music, and old school soul band – The Jo Fabro Group. Jo has performed both solo, and with these groups in Tokyo- Japan, at The Tauranga Jazz Festival in New Zealand, as well as at many of Australia’s top venues and music festivals.
Jo released her first album – Save my Soul in 2007, and followed this up with a second offering in 2012 with Pale Blue Moon.
JFQ released their self-titled first album in 2013 to much critical acclaim.
