About the Event

On Sunday 28 February MEMO Music Hall will launch a fabulous  new monthly series of Jazz Soirees’ at the newly named Ruby Carter Jazz  Lounge. The event will kick off at 4pm with a spectacular showcase by  some of Melbourne’s finest jazz vocalists and musicians, featuring  NICHAUD FITZGIBBON, NINA FERRO and JULIE O’HARA accompanied by one of  the hottest swinging trio’s around with STEPHEN GRANT- piano, MARK  ELTON- bass and DANNY FISCHER – drums.

“Ruby (Carter) was a unique character, she was simply an  essential ingredient in the Melbourne jazz scene, whether on stage or in  the audience. As a singer, or ‘song stylist’ as she liked to say, she  always sang from the heart. And she had a remarkable influence, as an  unofficial teacher, a jazz godmother, on generations of singers and  other musicians,” Adrian Jackson.

Carter held a residency at The Espy called Ruby Tuesday for about  eight years and Ms Clifton said renowned jazz musicians such as Paul  Grabowsky would play on her CDs for free because she was so well loved.  She was a long time friend of jazz great, Vince Jones.

“She was an incredible singer who had a great influence on all who knew her,” Jane Clifton.
