Jazzy Jeudi


Alliance Française de Melbourne & St Kilda Jazz present:

MAY 25: MONIQUE DIMATTINA

Singer and songwriter, versatile pianist and radio personality Monique diMattina will share a variety of French fancies - from Piaf and Sidney Bechet to her own originals - alongside her vast catalogue of songs penned on her cult 3RRR and ABC 774 radio segment ‘Shaken Not Rehearsed’ in which she writes a bespoke song in an hour, from listener requests.

"Monique di Mattina lights up my piano with her life, and my life with her piano. A worthy genius, she is."
Clare Bowditch

"Monique's witty songs are on a par with the Broadway songsmiths of the 1930s ..how refreshing to hear her intelligence bringing popular music and jazz together again" Lucky Oceans The Planet ABC RN

“A Dylanesque swagger with the Aussie vernacular”
Jazz & Beyond

“Dynamic and utterly divine”
Sydney Livewire
