Dear Jazz Lovers,
JMQ Jazz Ensemble is delighted to feature LOUISA RANKIN at Jazz Thursdays at The Water Rat this Thursday, MAR 5 at 7pm.(Doors 6.30pm) And superb saxophonist, JIM GLASSON shall be featured instrumentalist.

A dynamic and compelling vocalist, Louisa Rankin moves seamlessly from bandleader to ensemble member whilst maintaining a sound and style all her own, formed over years of musical exploration. She has established herself as one of Australia's leading jazz improvisers, working with many other name artists, after a sojourn overseas with mentors in Canada and studying singing in New York . As band-leader, Louisa has presented her music at all of Melbourne’s premier jazz clubs and is highly regarded as one of Melbourne’s leading jazz vocalists. Jim Glasson has been a sought-after saxophonist for many years, and has worked in band-leader John's various outfits for more than three decades – so it is always a pleasure to have him on the bandstand. With them are: Michael Harding, Hugh Harvey, Tom Lee, John Montesante.
