Fri June 8 at the Comedy Theatre
One of the world’s great jazz pianists, Melbourne’s own Joe Chindamo, turns his ear for re-appropriating works and making them wholly his own to the soundtracks of genre-shaping American filmmakers, the Coen Brothers.
This special Festival event brings Chindamo’s acclaimed recording, Another Place Some Other Time – named on the Sunday Herald Sun’s Top 10 for 2010 list and hailed by Ausjazz as “one of the must-have albums of the year” – into a breathtaking live performance format.
Themes from films including O’ Brother Where ‘Art Thou?, Fargo, Raising Arizona and Miller’s Crossing are reinterpreted by Chindamo and an ensemble of outstanding Australian Presented in association musicians.
