  AMERICAN drummer Joe Farnsworth teams up with Australian heavyweight Dale Barlow for the Prime Time Quartet East Coast tour this month.

For this tour, Joe's sensitive hard bop style is perfectly matched against titan tenor saxophonist Dale Barlow.

  SONGS From the Latin Skies is Katie Noonan and Karin Schaupp's latest album.  

The release sees the artists together on stage, doing a bit of "Latin chillin".

Once the parties are over and the mood quiets down, Latin music can be moody, romantic, relaxing and sexy, and it's that feeling that Noonan and Schaupp have captured in the release.    

At the A&I Hall, Station St. Bangalow, tomorrow from 8pm.
