Appearing together for the first time are three of Brisbane’s busiest women on the jazz scene today. Peta Leigh Wilson, a brilliantly versatile and inventive pianist/composer, has played with the best and composed for film and radio. Bassist/composer Helen Svoboda has worked with the likes of Joe Chindamo. In addition to freelancing, Helen leads a number of her own original projects including The Biology of Plants, Sprout and the Min/Svoboda/Hawkins Trio. Saxophonist/Composer Martha Baartz, has performed with the likes of Renee Geyer and had much of her original material played on Radio Nationals Jazztrack. Individually, each of the three has had much success performing nationally and internationally in varying collaborations. This will be a special coming together in the spirit of strong women everywhere, to celebrate International Women’s Day with passion and finesse.
