Johnston Street Jazz - Thursday Evenings
Loretta Palmeiro and Mark Isaacs Thursday the 13th of may

This Thursday will be our 200th Johnston St Jazz!
Very happy to be celebrating it with Loretta and Mark and you guys.

Loretta Palmeiro and Mark Isaacs compose their music together on the spot, in real time, and without any safety net or roadmap. Demonstrating how music can elegantly respond to change, the duo draws on intuition, imagination and innovation as they take listeners on a remarkable and evolving voyage. The results can be delicate, furious or passionate: proof that unpredictability can be a beautiful journey even when the destination is unknown. Their music navigates through all boundaries between jazz, classical music, new music and many other genres.
