The legendary Vince Jones accompanied by his dynamic 17-piece big band and special guest, Melbourne’s Nina Ferro, will grace The Art House stage with smooth and melodic jazz sounds for one night only.
They will perform songs from “Come in Spinner”, the soundtrack album to the popular 1990 ABC mini-series set in the 1940s swing era against the backdrop of WWII. The double platinum album was originally scored with Grace Knight and will be revived by the soulful voice of Nina Ferro.
Australian born Nina Ferro is a multi-award-winning vocalist, songwriter, session and recording artist whose powerful, evocative voice, stunning vocal range and captivating stage presence have earned her an enviable international reputation. “Ferro is electric; without a doubt you know you’re in the hands of an experienced and seasoned performer… She commands the attention of the audience.” – Jennifer L, Weekend Notes.
The iconic Vince Jones is one of Australia’s leading jazz vocalists, three-time ARIA award winner, and has collaborated with the likes of Kate Cebrano, Grace Knight and Paul Grabowsky. Jazz enthusiasts from the Central Coast will be delighted by this rare opportunity to witness such an acclaimed performer at a local venue.
“For a long time, I’ve been thinking that I would like to revisit the “Come in Spinner” soundtrack music. I felt that the best place to showcase my astounding Big Band, 17-piece orchestra and music for the first time in 2023, is at the wonderful Art House. I can’t wait to sing these songs again with new stunning arrangements and listen to Nina Ferro breathe life into these much-loved classic WWII era tunes.” said Vince.
Jones and Ferro will be showcasing for the first time dynamic new interpretations of much-loved songs of the 40’s swing era including Cole Porters “I Got you Under My Skin”, Gershwin’s “The Man I Love”, “You Got to My Head”, and many more classics from the WWII era.
