Mowbray and Wall - World Jasz Duo
Returning for their third season at Music and Munch on Wednesday July 30th, are "World Jasz Duo", Paul Mowbray
and Michael Wall. The combination of nylon string guitar played by Mowbray and saxophone played by Wall, is
ideally suited to the acoustics of All Saints' and their blend of Latin and North American jazz as played by Stan
Getz and guitarists such as Joao Gilberto, has established them a steady following both in the Gulf Islands and on
Their performances tend to be sensual - exploiting the richness and contrast of the various combinations of
guitar and saxophone - sometimes overtly emotional, often spirited, usually risky and always exciting. Their
music, classified as "World Jasz" by the duo, emphasizes melodic improvisation, rather than harmonic, a style
which is perhaps more mainstream than jazz, since it is linear and tells a story.
Wednesday's programme will include Latin jazz standards such as Manha de Carnival, Blue Bossa and St. Thomas.
American jazz standards will include Equinox and Night and Day. Their repertoire also contains many of their own
compositions, some of which will be part of the programme.
Free music begins at 12.10pm at All Saints' followed by a delicious optional lunch for $5.50.
