Apologies that I haven’t blogged for a while. We have finally found a home in the Scenic Rim region of Queensland. When I’m not teaching I’m at home painting, sanding and cleaning. So until the next post, here’s a view from the garden. Cheers.
Here’s the review in Scenestr.

It was still daylight and there was a queue outside the Brisbane Jazz Club on Annie Street, Kangaroo Point, Brisbane.
Full house then? I asked.
Hungarian clarinettist Joe Fritz’s tone is the cream on an Irish coffee in winter. He plays melodies which weave in-and-out and break your heart with their unpredictable prettiness. He was at the Brisbane Jazz Club playing the music of Benny Goodman, Woody Herman, and plenty of driving, straight-ahead jazz.
