Australian artists head line-up for International Jazz & Blues Festival

They’ve just released their first album together now top Australian soul artist Deni Hines and jazz virtuoso James Morrison are teaming up to perform at the New Zealand International Jazz & Blues Festival.

The pair, who have been appearing together before near sell-out audiences in Sydney and Melbourne, will be performing jazz classics from their critically acclaimed album The Other Woman during their one-off Christchurch concert in March.

The aptly named album - many in the genre refer to Jazz as “the other woman” - is stacked with classics from Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, and Aretha Franklin as well as two originals of their own.

The concert is expected to draw the crowds at the annual New Zealand International Jazz & Blues Festival which runs from March 25 to April 4 and features some of New Zealand’s best musicians as well as a line-up of top international performers.
