SATURDAY 21ST MARCH, 2009
Thanks to everyone who came along to this performance.
Performance at 11
Judy Bailey became infatuated with jazz at the tender age of 12 after hearing a Fats Waller record. She went on to study piano at London’s Trinity College before moving to Australia in 1960 .
Bailey's inherent versatility is evident in her musical diversity and there is no doubt she is one of Australia's leading musicians and composers.
Judy Bailey is a talented pianist who has been influenced by players of all styles and has herself performed with every major Australian jazz musician over the past two decades.
She was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) for her services to jazz music and education and has recently received an award for Distinguished Services to Australian Music at the 2008 Classical Music Awards.
As a composer her best works are already a jazz legacy.
