Q: What do Paul Simon, The Beach Boys, The Beatles and numerous other Pop artists have in common?
A: Budding jazz vocalist Anea Duratovic and her quintet will be refrocking a number of their most famous pop melodies in fresh jazz attire.
Recently returned from London and now based in Perth, Anea Duratovic is one of Australia’s most outstanding young jazz vocalists.
Originally from Australia, Anea honed her craft through study at the West Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA), where she completed a Bachelor of Jazz (Honours), as well as through extended engagements with the West Australian Youth Jazz Orchestra (WAYJO). She has established herself as in demand vocalist throughout the local scene, performing with artists such as James Morrison, Kristin Berardi, Gian Slater and the Mace Francis Orchestra.
In 2014 Anea toured with her band The Anea Duratovic Quintet to Melbourne for a series of shows, showcasing her own compositions, and has also performed in the USA, Indonesia, Croatia, Germany and the UK.
For the last two and a half years, Anea has been travelling throughout Europe, particularly through Germany and the United Kingdom, and after living for two years in London, she’s back in her home city of Perth for the summer. She brings with her tonight a selection of her favourite pop songs, redone as fresh new jazz arrangements.
Make sure to join them at the Ellington Jazz Club, in what is going to be an amazing night of music!
