Johnston Street Jazz (18 April 2019)

With Naomi, cofounder Johnston St Jazz
It was good to meet Naomi, one of the co-founders of Johnston Street Jazz.

Johnston Street Jazz happens
every Thursday night
at 81 Johnston St Annandale.
Doors open 7.30pm for 8pm start
Tix: $20/$10 for an evening of improvised jazz.

The format of the evening is generally one set of great music (mostly instrumental, mostly local, mostly unamplified). Followed by Free For All, an open improv concept where the audience becomes the band.

Cohen's launched her new album “Pages Suite”.
