Jackie Bornstein with Two Guitars (Fermanis & Mamrot)

Listen to the richly toned vocals of Jackie Bornstein accompanied by two of Melbourne’s finest jazz guitarists. Together with the superbly gifted Craig Fermanis, Jackie will perform songs from the cool jazz of the 1950s and bossa of Brazil. Next, enjoy a little jazz manouche and standards from the Great American songbook when Jackie is joined by the exciting Dan Mamrot. Tickets available online or at the door – $10 entry (+ $1.44 booking fee for online tickets)

Having performed venues in Australia and the UK over the past 15 years, Jackie’s box of tunes takes the audience to the cool jazz of the 1950s, jazz manouche of Paris, and Latin American Nueva canción. With a particular talent for storytelling through song, Jackie gets to the heart of a tune and imparts a range of emotions through her use of varied vocal timbres.

Craig has shared the stage with a diverse range of artists including Ricki Lee Jones, James Morrison, Paul Grabowsky, Kate Cebrano, Christine Anu and The Melbourne Symphony. Craig was a finalist in both the Wangaratta National Jazz Awards and the James Morrison Jazz Scholarship. He has studied with Doug De Vries in Melbourne, and with Jim Hall and John Abercrombie in New York.

Dan is an improvising guitarist who has performed with many esteemed Australian and international artists including Jim Black, George Garzone, Stephen Magnusson, Oliver Lake, Jean Michel Pilc, Ben Robertson, John Taylor and more. He is currently performing, touring and recording with some of Australia’s finest musicians and has studied music in India, Italy and New York.
