Camelot Lounge warmly welcomes back Mark Isaacs and is delighted to host his 60th Birthday Concert. Mark began to perform publicly in his early teens and so is also celebrating nearly half a century on the stage.
For this concert, Mark has arranged a reunion of his acclaimed jazz trio. It is a rare occasion these days that sees Mark playing with a band, making this celebration even more of a special event.
The trio appearing in this performance is certainly well-seasoned. It formed the engine room of Mark’s acclaimed Resurgence project, which he led from 2006-13. Its four albums attracted two ARIA Award nominations, and the band toured extensively in Australia and Asia, including performing at the Tokyo Jazz Festival and recording a TV special for South Korean national television.
In 2015 the trio, with the support of Queensland Government, and joined by vocalist Briana Cowlishaw, made a 3000km road tour of rural Queensland, visiting many small and drought-stricken farming communities.
Mark’s other recent projects include composing his second symphony as well as classical recitals.
The Mark Isaacs Trio will work its jazz magic over familiar and not-so-familiar tunes. It will be an occasion to savour some very cool jazz in the intimate atmosphere of Marrickville’s Camelot Lounge.
“Monstrously brilliant....a prodigious group driven by a charismatic genius.... put [Isaacs] in a pair of iridescent orange Converse basketball boots and he becomes a stage demon.... a composer and musician utterly unencumbered by boundaries who has a breathtaking aptitude for making feeling and experience audible” AUSTRALIAN STAGE ONLINE
