Jazz on Sunday sessions at The Courier-Mail Spiegeltent as part of Brisbane Festival 2011 will feature jazz improvisers and performers in a programme celebrating modern and classic grooves.

Brisbane Festival Artistic Director Noel Staunton said The Courier-Mail Spiegeltent would be the perfect place to wind down the weekend and bask in tunes from fantastic local and international jazz artists.

Jazz on Sunday is a collaboration between Jazz Queensland and Brisbane Festival and will fill three lazy afternoons with modern and classic grooves including performances by Paul Grabowsky, award-winning Jamie Oehlers and acclaimed vocalist Leigh Carriage. The programme will also include big band music from the Brisbane Contemporary Jazz Orchestra featuring guest vocalist Amanda Carr (USA).
