Jazz and Social Justice – ASRC Benefit

In celebration of International Peace Day 2017, Jazz and Social Justice is coming to Uptown!

Jackie Bornstein brings her rich vocals to express the power of jazz as a force for justice, creativity and unity.

From early on jazz created a space inclusive of all races, where music served as a tool to confront social injustices of the day. Jackie has selected songs by artists including Louis Armstrong, Nina Simone, Billie Holiday, Duke Ellington, Leonard Cohen and Vince Jones, demonstrating the range of social justice issues addressed by jazz artists from the 1930’s to the modern day. Featuring Jackie Bornstein (voice), Julien Wilson (sax), Craig Fermanis (guitar), Philip Rex (bass), Aaron McCoullough (drums). Hosted by the Melbourne Improvisers Collective.

Doors 8pm. Music 8:30pm sharp. To reserve a table please email uptownjazzcafe@email.com​

All proceeds go to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC), the largest independent human rights organisation for refugees and people seeking asylum in Australia. This years UN Peace Day theme is "Together for Peace: Respect, Safety and Dignity for All" people forced to flee their homes in search of a better life. We hope to lend support to this theme by sharing music and stories of jazz greats who have taken a stand for social justice and raising funds for the ASRC.

Grab a tasty bite before the show or order to eat at Uptown from Akari Japanese Restaurant downstairs.
