When Jazz meets Funk
Ever since the mid 60’s when James Brown came storming onto the scene with his signature funk groove, jazz artists have been adapting this new feel to their own compositions.
This performance will feature some classic compositions from funk artists James Brown and the Meters, along with jazz-funk standards by Herbie Hancock and Mike Stern, plus some original twists from the band as they adapt other well-known material into the funk groove.
Joining guitarist Chris Johnstone on stage for both shows will be long time Canberra drummer Ben Schumann and bassist James Luke. All three have played together in various musical formats for over 20 years and have developed a deep musical connection that is bound to produce some amazing grooves and get your feet tapping and hands clapping!
