For some highlights from the Melbourne International Jazz Festival, check out the picks by Jessica Nicholas from ABC Jazz
"Terence Blanchard, Samuel Yirga, Dr.Lonnie Smith and Renaud Garcia-Fons are all in Australia this week, and they're featured on this episode.
We’ll hear a breezy, freshly-minted samba from singer Melody Gardot, and a soulful 1960s jazz-samba from Cannonball Adderley. Plus there are new releases by young vocalist Josh Kyle (recently returned to Australia after several years in London) and Japanese pianist Eri Yamamoto."
