As part of the Memo St Kilda Jazz Summit THE RUBY CARTER LOUNGE will be officially launched on Sun 3 Nov. Curated by Nichaud Fitzgibbon and hosted by Jane Clifton, the afternoon will be a very special gathering of Ruby’s favourite ‘Sons & Daughters’ and Melbourne’s finest jazz musicians and vocalists who will pay homage to the Jazz matriarch of St Kilda – The Beloved Ruby Carter.
Ruby Carter always made Sunday arvos upstairs at The St Kilda Army & Navy Club a special gig. Audiences were treated with stunning performances of Jazz standards and stories by Ruby. She was always accompanied by the best jazz musos, some up and coming, some established and …pity the poor fool who thought it was ok to talk during a ballad.
