Review from recent concert in Tomerong NSW:
‘What a fabulous night’s entertainment with Janet Seidel, the world-renowned jazz singer, and her trio, all master musicians and Ben Jones on saxophone as well! They had the audience spell-bound from the first note and the applause after each solo was quite deafening. The time just seemed to fly and, all too soon, she was into a number of audience-induced encores.
The rapport between Janet and Ben, particularly, was amazing and the choice of music superb – and all of this on a cold winter’s night!
I feel that I can speak for all who attended by saying that it was immensely enjoyable and we all hope that Janet can come back again soon. Thanks to Janet, Ben, Chuck and David – a brilliant show’
