Modern Masterpieces



Lillian Albazi Quintet performs modern arrangements of seminal standards from The Great American Songbook, celebrating the pioneers who laid down the foundations for jazz today.

Presenting their music in a modern framework, Lillian believes this reflects ‘the 21st-century jazz scene, which at its roots is ever-changing, evolving and adapting’.

Joined by pianist Tony Gould, the Quintet explores golden-era swing, Latin jazz, Brazilian jazz and classic 19th and 20th-century ballads.

Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre & Lillian Albazi Quintet


Works by Noble, Dietz, Schwartz, Kern, Fields, Shearing, Weiss, Rodgers, Hart, Harbach, Paul, Raye, Portet and Mercer.
