Vince Jones has set the benchmark for Australian Jazz artists since his emergence in the jazz clubs of Melbourne in the late 70s and early 80s. His 20 album, international career has never hesitated in its musical evolution - a career played in the moment. He is a national treasure whose music transcends musical boundaries. He is that rare genre-defying artist who creates music without borders. From Iris DeMent’s folk “Our Town” to his original piano heavy, new age “Wonderworld”, he comments, sometimes uncomfortably, about the world we live in from an unashamedly idealistic perspective. A brief, thoughtful solo from Vince is worth a hundred notes played with less discretion. Particular about the musical company he keeps, he’s enjoyed playing with the best musicians the country has to offer and continues to do so. On January 25th, Vince returns to The Basement for one night only.
