Australia welcomes Holland’s Houdini’s! A highlight in the 21 concert tour of this great jazz outfit from behind the dykes. The most extensive jazz tour of any Dutch jazz group ever undertaken in Australia. Jazz fans dug this band everywhere, at Melbourne’s Montsalvat Jazz Festival, at the Festival of Perth, at the Queensland Jazz Festival in Brisbane, in the tropical rainforest of the north, the outback of Kalgoorlie and across the states: four weeks of one of the tightest jazz units around anywhere.The Houdini’s Live at the Kiama Jazz Festival’ is a tribute and proof to this wonderful band’s capacity to perform ‘anytime, anywhere’ with grip, zest and above all passion for an audience that knows what it takes to come ‘down under’ and spill out the energy. This is the 8th CD of the Houdini’s in 10 years and it contains 9 of the greatest Houdini’s hit tunes sounding at their best - all originals but for one Gershwin tune ‘Gone’. Congratulations Houdini’s! Here’s to the next 10 years.
