  • MISTER OTT Debut for SIMA – August 10th 2013


Mister Ott is performing its debut for SIMA, and I’m lucky to be their poster boy for their new program. I have played the Sound Lounge stage so many times over the years and I can’t wait to hear my new music there. Very exciting. There is something special about this stage, or maybe its the audience, but every time I play here I feel inspired to play my best. In the band for this evening will be regulars Ellen Kirkwood – trumpet, Eden Ottignon – bass, Dan Kennedy – drums. Special guests for the night are Carl Morgan – guitar and Luke Sweeting – piano and organ. Carl is a fantastic soloist with chops to burn who played with us last at Jazzgroove in March. I played with Luke in Canberra last November and he really embraced the Ethiopian roots of the music. His sound on hammond organ is one of the best I’ve heard. Saturday August 10th 8:30-11pm The Sound Lounge, Seymour Centre, City Road Chippendale $25/$20/$15 (Non-member, member, student) BOOK HERE or call online 93517940
