Chasing the Moon combines the exuberant and romantic sounds of European & Latin Jazz, imbibing them with their own distinctive style which embraces folk elements and a dash of the blues. The arrangements are fresh, and original and provide just the right framework to let everyone shine.

Led by Kathy Bluff on violin and vocals and Paul Burjan on saxophone and flute, the band explores a rich, orchestral palette, combining soulful vocals with swinging violin and sax. Garry Steel’s accordion weaves across the other instruments bringing that essential Parisian charm.

Respected Sydney jazz guitarist, John Blenkhorn provides rhythmic pulse and exquisite solos, whilst the talented rhythm section, featuring Merv Sequiera on double bass and Nic Cecire on drums, lays down the best of grooves.

“Their evocation of gypsy swing, cool blues and continental jazz styles is peerless among Australian groups. The quality of the arrangements, the virtuosity of the instrumentalists and Kathy Bluff’s vocals are simply outstanding.” – Tony Smith, Trad & Now Magazine

“Like walking through a music festival in a European village” – Simon Marnie, ABC
