Virna Sanzone and Kevin Hunt:
The last duo performance was such a hit we’ve brought them back after numerous emails from our patrons.
“Sanzone has a voice like the caramel layer in a piece of caramel slice…so smooth, warm and pliable…and you’d definitely want a second serve with another piece to take home. It’s rich and beautiful.” Lissa Christopher, SMH
“a revelation…Virna Sanzone conveyed so much emotion in vocals that were powerful yet often caressing, the degree of care taken giving the impression that the sounds were being nurtured as they emerged” – Roger Mitchell ausjazz.net
“…left the musicians breathless and the audience whooping with delight” The Age
Following their electrifying duo performance in January, Foundry 616 are thrilled to welcome Virna Sanzone and Kevin Hunt back for a night of exploratory, multicultural, jazz-infused music at it’s best!
Acknowledged as one of Australia’s most distinguished jazz and soul artists, multilingual vocalist, Virna Sanzone has worked with an impressive list of Australian greats, including Paul Grabowsky, The Australian Art Orchestra, Paul Kelly and Richard Clapton to name a few. Tonight she joins forces with another Australian great, pianist Kevin Hunt.
Kevin says –
“Playing with Virna Sanzone is a creative privilege. Virna has an incredible sound with lots of emotion and musical intelligence. She is a great artist.”
