New Australian Jazz Releases

Middle Eight Music isn't just about show music - we are also proud supporters of Australian jazz artists. Here is a selection of the latest from one of the best local independent labels, Newmarket Music.

Ingrid James & Louise Denson - Portrait

Jazz vocalist Ingrid James and pianist Louise Denson explore innovative ideas and themes, captured vividly in an album they hope will resonate with audiences around the world.

Rory O'Donoghue - As It Is....

With his new album 'As It Is', Rory O'Donoghue (Auntie Jack Show) gets back to his roots with a tasty mix of jazz, rock and musical theatre songs recorded in a live studio performance.

Sally Street - Evil Little Me

Little Evil Me offers a repertoire of tantalizing jazz and blues delights bubbling with mellifluous flights of fancy that will entrance and delight the ears.

Sweet Lowdowns - Cuttin' Capers

Sweet Lowdowns is a swing quartet hailing from Melbourne. Perhaps imagine Lester Young and Billie Holiday travelling to Paris and jamming with a stripped down “hot-club” style rhythm section.

The Syncopators - In-Sync

..very entertaining jazz band- in my opinion, the best of its style in Australia." - Don Burrows. AO, MBE.
