A Truly Sensational Night Of Music

Trysette and Fiona Joy graced the stage with their piano and vocal talents on Thurs 20 October. Fiona played the first set sensitively, not really jazz, more folksy/classical, but nevertheless it was music which enthralled the small audience and left them speechless and an encore was ‘demanded’ … and in the same silence and listening intent on the part of the audience, the final number brought to a close a night of superb music.
We often say ‘If only walls had ears’ … well, I believe that the Club really does have ears, and listens and retains every single note of music played. This is why people detect such a unique feeling and ‘presence’.

I was in the audience at the Brisbane Jazz Club last Thursday. Very sincerely thanks for the music. Over the last 12 months or so I've been expanding the range of music I listen to and seeking out different styles to see if they do anything for me, nothing has moved me the way your music does. Your performance at the Jazz Club was totally absorbing and the CDs, Blue Dream in particular evoke feelings and take me places I'm at a loss to explain. Your music is a wonderful gift to the world and I'm sincerely grateful to have a little piece of it.
With all the best, Jim
