Tessie Overmyer plays Thad Jones ADD TO FAVOURITES

Tessie Overmyer (Sydney) features alongside WAYJO's Wednesday Night Orchestra playing music of late great big band composer and band leader Thad Jones to celebrate the 100th anniversary of his birth.

Tessie Overmyer is a rising star in the Sydney jazz scene. A fiery young saxophonist with a maturity of playing well beyond her years.

Thad’s music combines the swingin’ foot tappin’ sensibility of the Count Basie band with the style and harmonic sophistication of Duke Ellington.

A night of underground big band excitement – just like a night in New York’s Village Vanguard.

Duration 2 Hours Includes 20 Minute Interval
