I'm coming to Perth for a while, i need the real straight dope - where are the best fish & chip shops?
Fishing Boat Harbour in Fremantle has Ciccerello's, Joe's Fish Shack and Kailiss Brothers. All very good fish and chips and a beautiful spot.

My favourite place for fish and chips is Clancy's pub in Fremantle. A great vibe - an old fashioned pub with a good selection of beers on tap. The Sunday session has The Zydecats playing for free, featuring Lucky Oceans on slide guitar. He is a virtuoso and a Grammy award winner prior to coming to Australia 20 years ago.

It has a big grassed area out the back and is a favourite for families as the kids run around and kick footies while the parents have a drink and watch them. Truly great fish and chips though. :thumbsu:

Cheers for that. I'll be living in the CBD so shouldn't be a problem getting around. I lived over there for a while when i was a teenager but that is a long time ago and i can't remember the layout much. I lived @ North Beach

If anyone knows of some good, exciting, slightly different, recent jazz, I'd love to know about it. I liked the tunes by contemporary noise quintet Zarko posted. I also like Battles, they have a strong jazz influence.

You'll never know how close to the mark you were with that sentence

lol you are such a wanker, it's hilarious.

I live in the inner suburbs of melbourne and there are jazz nights within walking distance to where i live.

You live in radelaide and are about to move to perth. Please don't pretend you know the inner goings on of melbourne. It's pathetic.

Love this type of jazz.

Bebop.

Plenty of this stuff played locally in Melbourne jazz clubs.

Has anybody listened to Esperanza Spalding?

She won best new artist at the Grammys and is the first jazz artist to do so.

Very talented. Had not heard of her until this morning when I read an article on The Huffington Post about how Justin Bieber fans are so upset about him not winning it :)

I have not put a youtube link up in ages and may well have cocked it up !!!!

Went to Beck's Music Box last night to see Jack DeJohnette and his quintet play. Astounding virtuosity from all players.

They moved effortlessly between free form jazz, African Rythms, be bop and swing. Featured an electric bass player who also vocalised (not quite singing, yet not scatting), a guitarist who played a double neck guitar, a trumpeter who also played conch shells and a sax player who played alto and soprano.

At one stage, DeJohnette played a gorgeous ballad on melodica in a trio setting with bass and guitar.

Simply amazing performance from a genuine legend.

Missed that show.

:(

Dejohnette is one of my fav jazz drummers.

Just found out about the album For Musicians Only by Dizzy Gillespie.

What a great record.

Is this a joke... All rely on tourists, therefore are overpriced and serve average fish and chips. Sorry for going off topic.

WTF???? I can only imagine that was from a thread where a tourist had asked about places to visit in Perth/Fremantle? Most tourists to Fremantle go to Fishing Boat Harbour !

Off topic ok!

If you like Vince Jones ( I think he is brilliant), then you will probably like Chet Baker. Try to buy an album that has his vocals as well as his trumpet playing. Very cool.

If you like the second one, try The Branford Marsalis quintet. Any album.

If I had to list some albums to get a person interested in jazz.

Miles Davis - Kind of Blue
Lee Morgan - The Sidewinder
Stanley Turrentine - The Spoiler
Cannonball Adderley - Somethin Else
Sonny Rollins - Saxaphone Colossuss
