Life is about the journey - some roads are not always what they seem but you sure learn a great deal from them!
Interestingly, the history of jazz takes us back to the 19th century where European classical music was mixed with African-American music. Some of the iconic jazz musicians are Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, and Frank Sinatra. Arguably, only a few of the greats.

This year, Swan River Rambles will be performing a repertoire of jazz, swing, blues and other New Orleans styles. Originally, Swan River Rambles performed aboard the 'Paddlesteamer Decoy' as it cruised the Swan River. However, over recent years their performance has extended to land-based locations.
The Ramblers will be performing at the Ellington Jazz Club in Northbridge on 22 May 2022. The group will consist of Adam Hall (trumpet/vocals), Adrian Galante (clarinet/piano), Ray Walker (guitar/vocals), Daniel Susnjar (drums) and Pete Jeavons (double bass).
Tickets can be purchased online through Ellington Jazz Club. There are a few tickets remaining, however, I suspect this to be sold out prior to the event.
If you are looking for an evening where you can sit back, relax and listen to some jazz, then this would be a perfect opportunity to do so.
