32 bars – in 32 bars

Our mission

  • compose and arrange 32 brand new jazz tunes
  • record and film the songs live, at 32 different Melbourne music venues
  • showcase up to 100 talented Melbourne musicians

Our director

Mark Morand, Australian composer and musician.

Our inspiration

the “Great American Songbook” – songs written from the 1920s to the 1950s for Broadway, Hollywood and musical theatre that subsequently became jazz “standards”.
