Studio 188 says
Popular Melbourne jazz vocalist Hetty Kate and outstanding guitarist James Sherlock bring a sophisticated selection of songs to Studio 188.

“Like Peggy Lee on a Vespa” (Marc Myers, Jazzwax USA) Hetty is one of jazz luminary James Morrison’s favourite
singers, has graced stages and festivals from New Zealand to New York, released six acclaimed albums, sung for the swing community across Europe, Asia and Australia. More recently she has joined the ABC Jazz stable of vocalists with her album Dim All The Lights. Hetty now divides her time between Europe and Melbourne and is looking forward to the release of two new albums for 2016.

Known for her pure tone, unadorned style and natural musicality, Hetty Kate is often lauded for what she ‘doesn’t do’ as a jazz singer. Her approach keeps true to the melody and lyric, and uses improvisation in a way which never detracts from the story of the song. It is this rare quality that led Mal Stanley, from ABC Jazztrack (ABC Jazz Radio) to invite her to record an exclusive album of treasures from the catalogues of Julie London, Peggy Lee and June Christy in 2013, Dim All The Lights.

James Sherlock is one of Australia’s most captivating and exciting guitarists. He has performed with the MSO, guitar virtuoso Martin Taylor, Katie Noonan, Sheila Jordan and a list of Australia’s finest (too long to include here), and is often noted for his beautiful work with Brisbane vocalist Kristin Berardi. James won the prestigious ‘Ike Isaacs International Jazz Guitar Award” and was nominated for the Freedman Fellowship.
For this intimate show, Hetty and James are thrilled to be joined by Brisbane bassist Helen Russell, and will perform the hits from Dim All The Lights alongside classics and curios from Hetty’s popular swing albums. Sure to please fans of timeless music from The Great American Songbook, this will be an entertaining and exciting evening!
