‘Jazz Memories' invites people from across Greater Geelong and Victoria to send in a video or message describing the story behind your favourite jazz song. In this live online concert, an acclaimed jazz ensemble featuring Lucy Head (Vocals), Callum Watson (Piano), Evan Jones (Bass) and Sean Loughran (Drums) will perform these songs and share your stories.
To participate in 'Jazz Memories', simply record a short video of yourself stating your favourite jazz song and describing why it is significant to you. Submit your video using the form below before October 7 and we will do our best to include it in the performance. It could be the story of the first song you danced too at your wedding, or meeting Frank Sinatra at Festival Hall...
If you are unable to record a video please send your response including your name via SMS to 0490 112 986 (Voice recording or text) - or write your message in the form below.
This project is supported by the City of Greater Geelong through its ‘Geelong Seniors Festival Program’.
Example Jazz Memory
- I love Jazz I’m 77 years young and my era of music 50,60,70s was fantastic. My best memory ever was going to see Louis Armstrong in 1964 at Festival Hall. His presence on stage was unforgettable with a White Dinner Jacket and large hanky and always big grin. I loved all his tunes but Blueberry Hill was sensational, and to this day no one sings with such feeling “Its a Wonderful World”. Valerie Hood
