06 April Friday – Bloodlines


Friday 6 April, 2018, 8.30pm

SKU: N/A Categories: ,



The show brings together family members, the pianist Dave MacRae, the singer Joy Yates and their daughter Jade MacRae.

All have extensive international credits and experience in the wide world of music. They rarely appear together and fortuitously, on this, the occasion of Dave’s 78th birthday! Jade will be in Sydney for a spell from her current touring commitments in USA and Europe and will join with Joy and Dave on this gig.

Past Bloodlines enthusiastically received performances by press and audiences have included original and classic jazz compositions, as will this performance. Joined by stellar friends and creative musicians, Gary Holgate on double bass and Nic Cecire on drums, a great night is sure to be had and we hope you will join us.

Don’t miss this show if it returns. It gives a too-rare chance to hear pop singer Jade MacRae reveal her potential to be the finest jazz vocalist Australia has produced. John Shand, SMH

“… Best known as an r’n’b singer and songwriter, Jade is also an intuitive improviser, her scatting was a highlight. She put most of our so-called jazz singers to shame with her musicality, intensity and flair, and used her improvisations to fuel blazing recapitulations of the songs. Another delight lay in the harmonies between Jade and her effortlessly expert mother who showed her singular ability to make a song at once breezy and intense.….Dave MacRae, meanwhile, showed again that he is at least the equal of any jazz pianist in the land, boasting a singular flair for surprise, so that each solo was like a lucky dip in a fireworks box.”
