Australia's leading exponents of Be-bop and swing from the 40's and 50's. Now into the 8th year of their Wednesday residency at Uptown Jazz Café in Fitzroy, Bopstretch swings hard with the music of Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Tadd Dameron, Thelonious Monk, and more. Led by arguably the stronger alto saxophonist in the be-bop tradition to come out of the Australian jazz scene in a long time, Phil Noy, with jazz guitar master James Sherlock, the very cool rhythm section of Ben Hanlon on double bass, and Sam Bates on drums.
