Vince Jones Band – live at the Powerhouse, Brisbane International Jazz Festival 2013

I was so pleased to be offered the opportunity to capture one of my favourite jazz musicians at the recent Brisbane International Jazz Festival.  My brother introduced me to Vince Jones’ beautiful music back in 1986, and I have been a huge fan ever since. I met him at the Arts Centre Gold Coast earlier this year, the perfect opportunity to be cool, and tell Vince how inspiring I find his gift of music, how it had introduced me to the world of jazz and connected me to my chosen profession… however, my chance meeting with him unravelled into a very embarrassing display of school girl giddiness! (see pic on Facebook!) It was terrible, yet funny! Oh well. Here is my little clip of Vince Jones, and his band – Simon Baker (drums), Matt McMahon (keys) and Ben Waples (double bass).
