For 20 years the Noosa Jazz Festival has attracted extraordinary international and Australian talent to Noosa each year and as a special 20th celebration tribute we have added a new element to the program - the Legends Lunch.

The Legends Lunch is your exclusive opportunity to attend a unique, intimate dining and jazz experience with some of the worlds' greatest performers each year.
This year the inaugural lunch will be held at the new and sophisticated Quay West Resort & Spa Noosa on Saturday 4th September from 12 noon.

This years' special guest is timeless Jazz legend from New York, Mr Warren Vach.

Noosa Jazz Festival Director, Rod Lockwood says it offers Jazz patrons a special experience to listen to their stories and enjoy an exclusive performance.

"Our only regret is that we have not been able to introduce this to the Jazz Festival sooner, but we are very excited about this new element. Warren Vach is an extraordinary talent and his tales and travels will keep everyone amused and enthralled," said Mr Lockwood.

As another special attribute to the lunch Mr Vach will be interviewed and chatting with Australian Jazz aficionado, John Shand, the Jazz writer for the Sydney Morning Herald and author of the beautifully written and presented book, Jazz: The Australian Accent. The book released in 2008 is a snapshot of the contemporary jazz scene in Australia and poses the question "'is there such a thing as Australian jazz or is there just jazz made in Australia?

Vach is a supremely accomplished, versatile and rare performer who has made 35 Jazz albums. He has been astounding audiences worldwide for decades with his superb cornet, trumpet and flugelhorn styling's. Through live performances and recordings, along with stage, screen, radio and television appearances, Warren conveys incredible warmth through his burnished tone and intelligent improvisations.

He has performed and recorded with such luminaries as: Benny Goodman, Rosemary Clooney, Benny Carter, Hank Jones, Gerry Mulligan, Woody Herman, Ruby Braff and Bobby Short to name but a few.  We could not think of a better person to start our very special Legends Lunches than Warren Vach.

Indulge in 5 star dining as Executive Chef, Lee Jeynes presents a modern dining experience using the freshest of produce together with European influences.  Tickets are $65.00 that includes a two course lunch. The lunch will be held on Saturday 4th September at Quay West Resort and Spa Noosa.
