December Feature Event: Joanna Wallfisch from NYC

20 Dec, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

| $10 - $15
Perth Jazz Society: Joanna Wallfisch

Joanna Wallfisch has built an impressive profile since her move to New York from London in 2012. She has fashioned a musical identity of her own and been hailed by the great pianist Fred Hersch as “a real discovery—a first-rate musician in every way”.

Critics have described Joanna’s voice and music as “mesmerizing” (Jazzwise Magazine), with a “crystalline delivery” (Downbeat Magazine ) and a “sublime voice” (The Telegraph). In March 2015 she released her second album, “The Origin of Adjustable Things” (Sunnyside Records) — an intricate, sonically enveloping duo project with acclaimed classical and jazz pianist, Dan Tepfer.

Joanna is very excited to embark on her first tour of Australia, and to celebrate this fact at the Laneway Lounge in Perth.

Praise for Wallfisch:
[Wallfisch and Tepfer’s] interplay is sensitive and deep” — The New York Times

 

Tepfer provides an infectious running commentary to Wallfisch’s musings and yearnings on love affairs… The performances and the duo’s intimate rapport are pretty mesmerising” — Jazzwise Magazine

 

The youngest child of a renowned classical-music dynasty…crossing boarders and flouting rules seem to come naturally to Joanna Wallfisch. With her clear-eyed poetry [she] combines the purview of a singer-songwriter with the technical liberties of a jazz improviser” – The Boston Globe

 

The subtle chiaroscuro effects of dynamics, dissonance or vibrato, and her focussed, crystalline delivery will melt any purist’s heart” — Downbeat Magazine

 

A clear-eyed poetry… Wallfisch combines the intimate purview of a singer-songwriter with the technical liberties of a jazz improviser. Crossing boarders and flouting rules seem to come naturally to the youngest child of a renowned classical-music dynasty” — The Boston Globe
