Faster Louder Article 26/04/11 – “Shameem Taheri-Lee @ The Ellington Jazz Club, Perth”

“Taheri-Lee’s songs had a deep, soulful resonance that captivated the audience, propelled by a strong rhythmic backing, augmented by virtuoso keyboard solos. The whole band worked in unison to create a rich tapestry of colour…”

Sexy, sophisticated, suave, the Ellington Jazz Club has it all. Whether you’re an amateur jazzophile who thinks Louis Armstrong is that guy who landed on the moon, or a jaded veteran who thinks the only good jazz comes in 37/16 timing and involves instruments invented for the sole purpose of one performance and destroyed moments later to preserve the song’s originality, the Ellington Jazz Club is a Mecca for anybody with a toe in the Perth jazz scene.

Soulaverse at the Funk Club

BLOG ENTRY 08/05/10

What a packed and electric gig was the 3rd Soulaverse night at the Funk Club! I shared the stage with my mates The Accumulated Gestures who were launching their first single – these guys are like smooth D’Angelo meets the dirtiness of old school funk and soul, and they host a great party! And what is Soulaverse, you ask? Soulaverse is a collective of diverse groove-based artists in Perth, of which both The Accumulated Gestures and I are very proud to be members… in fact, the collective was largely initiated by Donovan, the lead singer of The AG’s. Among us there are bands, beat makers and emcees churning out a range of eclectic vibes ranging from neo-soul to hip hop to electro-funk. At the moment Soulaverse has a monthly residency at the Funk Club – do check these nights out, I guarantee there’ll be a different flavour every month!
