      JO LAWRY QUARTET

      Jo Lawry – Vocals

      Will Vinson – Keys/Sax

      Bonnie Aue – Bass

      Angus Mason - Drums

      -----

      Vocalist and songwriter Jo Lawry is one of the best in the business. Having worked with luminaries including Fred Hersch, Sting and Paul Simon, we are thrilled to present Jo in concert with her Quartet, featuring NYC saxophonist, Will Vinson.

      -----

      Jo Lawry grew up on an almond farm in South Australia and, after a brief flirtation with operatic study, began her formal instruction in jazz. Her debut album I Want to Be Happy was named one of the “Best CDs of the Decade” by Downbeat Magazine, but Jo has become well-known beyond jazz circles for her work with Sting, with whom she has toured and recorded since 2009, as well as her work with Paul Simon and Peter Gabriel. In 2013, Jo was featured in the film 20 Feet From Stardom, which won the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. Having lived in New York for the last 17 years, Jo is now back in Adelaide and thrilled to be part of this year’s Wangaratta Jazz Festival, performing originals from her albums Taking Pictures and The Bathtub and The Sea, alongside her unique takes on jazz standards. She will be joined by Will Vinson on alto saxophone and keyboards, Bonnie Aué on bass, and Angus Mason on drums.
