Ya like jazz? You will after listening to these albums
Think jazz is just three guys in suits scatting? Think again! There’s a whole world of different jazz genres that are sure to suit any musical tastes.
Tim Finn, acclaimed singer/songwriter and founder of legendary Australian band Split Enz, has announced that he will be playing a handful of exclusive shows in Australia this November.
The shows are in support of his new studio album The View Is Worth The Climb which continues to garner praise from fans and media.
Tim Finn and his band will be performing songs from the new album as well as classics from his time in both Split Enz and Crowded House – and songs from his illustrious solo career. Fans can expect to hear songs such as Poor Boy, Six Months In A Leaky Boat, Persuasion, I See Red and Weather With You.
Finn continues to remain an important and relevant musical force, headlining festivals and inspiring a new generation of artists, so it’s no wonder the recent tribute albums (and accompanying They Will Have Their Way concerts) to Tim and brother Neil’s work have all sold out.
Finn’s new album The View Is Worth The Climb was produced by the Grammy Award winning Jacquire King (Kings Of Leon, Tom Waits, Cold War Kids) and was recorded over two weeks at Roundhead Studios in Auckland.
Already this year Tim Finn has headlined the St Kilda Festival, performed in the opening celebrations for the Rugby World Cup (to thousands of people in Auckland and broadcast to millions globally) and commenced work on an independent film score. There are plans for a US album release and tour in 2012.
In the meantime, Australian fans have the opportunity to catch an iconic artist in the true sense of the word. Ladies and gentleman we give you the mighty, Tim Finn.
