FRINGEWORLD 2022 | Dirty Jazz and Clean Living | 4.5 Stars

Review | Peter Spence

Can she do no wrong? Queen of the Perth jazz scene Jessie Gordon has once again blown the FRINGEWORLD stage away with another whirl wind season of performances, showing us all that jazz really is the epitome of sexiness. Mark Turner, Karl Florrison and Michael Perkins team up with Gordon to bring a most enjoyable hour of classic tunes and some original content.

Whether it’s the guitar or saxophone, Turner is an absolute master of melody, backed up by an incredible voice, a perfect vocal accompaniment to the impeccable ensemble. The rhythm is delivered with snappy and classy gentlemen, Perkins looking sharp and bringing some faultless flurries on the drum skins, Florisson with his beaming smile making the stage light up and keeping the rooms energy high.

The collection of masterful musicians and the angelic voice are undoubtedly a highlight of the whole festival year after year, and would easily be the choice if you could only catch one show per season. Settled in at our very classy table, with a dimly lit room and a softly lit stage, the Ellington Jazz Club always makes for the perfect night for a little Dirty Jazz. We are treated to some of Gordon’s own original music as well as some of the naughtiest and delectable classics delivered in style by the always amazing fiery redhead on the microphone.
