AdvertisementNora Ephron’s 1989 film, When Harry Met Sally, was the defining romantic comedy romp of an era – the film’s Grammy Award-winning soundtrack is inseparable from its relatable screenplay. In the days before online dating, the question of ‘can men and women really be friends?’, was charmingly complemented by a classic jazz soundtrack performed by Harry Connick Jnr, featuring well-loved standards such as It Had To Be You, I Could Write A Book, Our Love Is Here To Stay, and many more.
Beloved to local audiences, Jessie Gordon and Mark Turner will join together with a fabulous band to present an evening of iconic romantic vocal jazz. Don’t miss this exclusive performance for one night only at The Ellington!
ABOUT JESSIE AND MARK:
Accomplished multi-instrumentalist/singer/songwriter Mark Turner and jazz/blues singer and songwriter Jessie Gordon have known each other for many years, since he was a mere slip of a 13 year old and she was a willowy red head avoiding the sun at all opportunities. More than 20 years of friendship have ensued, with music as the cornerstone of their lives.
Together they have toured Australia, Asia and Europe, won multiple awards and recorded on eight albums, including their collaborative releases ‘Best Friends’ (2019) and ‘Live at Kidogo’ (2021).
Mark and Jessie enjoy a friendship that thrives on celebrating each other, celebrating the joy of living and sharing deeply in the painful, beautiful moments of life. This is the energy they bring to their songwriting and their live performances, and it’s an energy built over two decades of performing together.
