Classic albums performed live

From Standing Room Only, 1:47 pm on 31 May 2015

One of the centrepieces of the Wellington Jazz Festival is the Rogue Classic Albums Live series, where local musicians tackle classic records to see what of themselves they can bring to LPs with established audiences. Standing Room Only producer Shaun D Wilson brought together three of the musicians who are taking on the challenge of breathing new life into established classics. Sax player Dan Yeabsley is taking on The Dave Brubeck Quartet's Time Out, Trumpeter Alexis French is channelling Miles Davis' Birth Of The Cool, and renowned vocalist Lisa Tomlins is combining Joni Mitchell's Mingus with live album Shadows and Light.
