Lyric Lane Jazz Festival: Jessica Carlton
Time & Location
About the event
Recently nominated for The Freedman Jazz Fellowship (2021); Bell Award nomineee for Young Australian Jazz Artist of the Year (2015); and recipient of the Sir Zelman Cowen School of Music Jazz Prize (2013), Jessica Carlton is a trumpet player and composer originally from Melbourne who has made a new home for herself in Western Australia. A passionate fan of ECM music and Australian jazz, Carlton has formed a group to explore arrangements of these tunes and original compositions. The focus of this group is to experiment with soft, emotive playing that is at times melancholic and nostalgic, but also hopeful. Carlton will be joined by the incredible musicianship of Jeremy Thomson (guitar), Zac Grafton (double bass), and Sarah Ramsey (vocals).
