A quick guide to Melbourne’s jazz festival

Versatile: Bassist/composer/vocalist Sam Anning will lead his septet of fantastic musicians at the MRC on December 3, 6.30pm.

As we leave our long lockdown, tickets go on sale today, Friday 22 October 2021, for the reworked and quite compressed Melbourne International Jazz Festival that will mostly take place over four days from Thursday 2 December.

It will provide a welcome burst of live music allowing patrons and musicians to enjoy the experience of live music in the flesh, albeit with constraints of required vaccination, appropriate distancing and masks where appropriate, plus the QR code check-ins we have become so used to.

I usually post a program preview each year, but the details of the new program were released only yesterday, so I have just been catching up on what’s on the program. In the hope that I can help everyone decide quickly what to choose, I have prepared a table that summarises the gigs scheduled for each day, with the venues, ticket prices, times and concert details listed.

You should be able to right-click on the image to view it, then easily decide what concerts are of interest, then visit the festival website to book. I hope it helps.
