Jex Saarelaht & Jonathan Zion – Debut
Sun 5th July @ 8:30 pm - 11:00 pm$15 – $20
Pianist Jex Saarelaht first worked as a duo with vibraphonist Alan Lee in the early ‘80s, recording the album, Two Out. He also performed as a duo with guitarist Doug deVries at the inaugural Wangaratta Jazz Festival in 1990.
Twenty-seven years later they were reunited at a Jazz Benefit concert, reigniting Jex’s interest in the duo format. Having worked in a resident band with double-bassist Jonathan Zion (of the Luke Howard Trio), for a number of years, Jex looks forward to this one-on-one meeting with him, exploring his original pieces, along with selected gems from the jazz canon.
