In this very special quartet performance, Sarah will share songs from her latest release – Without You. This recording is a reinvention of the timeless music of Brazilian Jazz with fresh ideas and subtle surprises, adding to its legacy.

“I’ve always loved the music of Brazil, Tom Jobim, Elis Regina, and of course Astrud Gilberto,” says Sarah McKenzie. “What I especially love about Jobim is the simplicity and clarity of his melodies, songs that one can remember and sing.”

Sarah will be joined by Perth-based musicians Kristian Borring (guitar), Nick Abbey (bass), and Pete Evans (drums).

Tickets are strictly limited – don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear Sarah in Perth!

This event is presented by the Perth International Jazz Festival and WA Youth Jazz Orchestra.
