From Bebop to Blue Note & Beyond.
Boasting a lineup of exceptional Australian Jazz musicians, the featured singers shall be FEM BELLING & CRAIG SCHNEIDER.
The band comprises six horns, a matchless rhythm section, with additional guest Vocalists - performing dedicated Jazz arrangements by Montesante with their genesis from Blue Note to Bebop...
ARIA nominated jazz vocalist and violinist, FEM BELLING burst onto the Melbourne Jazz Scene, after a sojourn in London, with her exquisite, versatile voice and powerful stage presence, lending authenticity, creativity and something extra special to jazz. A born performer and daughter of a jazz pianist, Fem throws her own spin on jazz standards and paying homage to the Jazz Greats. She showcases her passion for scatting and her sheer joy of making music, with class, sophistication and diversity. She performs as a featured guest Jazz singer with both Montesante's Jazz Quintet & Dectet, and is a favourite with audiences.
Also on vocals is CRAIG SCHNEIDER, a multi-award-winning pianist, vocalist, composer, arranger, educator, and musical director. Equally, at home on the concert stage or in an intimate jazz club or cabaret venue, he has performed all over the world. During years in London, he established himself as one of the leading pianist/vocalists in the city, becoming a resident pianist at the Savoy and a regular artist at the Dorchester, Claridges and the Ivy Club where he performed for celebrities. He has released six albums and leads his own shows and bands...
The John Montesante Dectet performs Jazz for those who savour undiluted virtuosity, outstanding soloists and big horn arrangements of Blue Note standards and Bebop.
