ECHOES OF THE JAZZ AGE
with John Bell, Simon Tedeschi and special guest Blazey Best

The 1920s, or the Jazz Age, was one of the most thrilling decades in modern history.

Nowhere is this era better described than in Echoes of the Jazz Age, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s famous essay on the Roaring Twenties, nor more wondrously evoked than in John Bell and Simon Tedeschi’s performance of the same title, in words and music.

Centered around Fitzgerald’s essay, with sizzling quotes from Mae West, Groucho Marx, and Dorothy Parker, and poetry by T.S Eliot, the performance features the irresistible piano music of Scott Joplin, Louis Armstrong and James P Johnson, and songs by George Gershwin, Ray Henderson and Fats Waller.

Revered actor and director John Bell and renowned pianist Simon Tedeschi are two of Australia’s best-loved artists and in this, their third remarkable collaboration, and with special guest Blazey Best, they unite to present a magical, entertaining show to take audiences back to all the brilliance and bedazzlement of the Jazz Age.
