Recent press and international radio play

Leading up to our gig at Canberra's Capital Jazz Project in June Jenna was interviewed about our performance there with Miroslav Bukovsky as our guest in an article in The Canberra Weekly. See a copy here. Our performance at the Capital Jazz Project was reviewed on local blog CanberraJazz.net

We've had some international radio play recently. In April our debut album  The Opening Statement  was featured on Flagler College Radio, in St. Augustine, Florida, alongside a recording of Jenna's String Quartet no. 1. In June we received an email informing us that our album was featured on Chicago's jazz Radio www.WDCB.org

 

Divergence album reviewed on 'All About Jazz'

Jack Bowers, resident big band expert who contributes to international jazz blog 'All About Jazz' had some nice things to say when he reviewed our 2013 album  'The Opening Statement' on the site this month. Thanks Jack. Read his thoughts here.

"Divergence Jazz Orchestra is remarkably strong and consistently pleasing... Cave writes with depth and maturity well beyond her years, a virtue not lost on the DJO, which carries out her wishes to the letter."

Band Launch success and BoHo gig

 The Divergence Jazz Orchestra are still buzzing after a very successful Band Launch concert at the Bald Faced Stag Hotel on July 29.
We got a great turn out and we were thrilled with the performance. John Hardaker at Orange Press wrote us a great review:
