The Big Jam opened the Melbourne International Jazz Festival on 1 May with a big glorious sound. Federation Square was packed with people, many of whom came along with instruments – including saxophones, trumpets, violins, and even a sousaphone! For people further up the back the on-stage action could be viewed on the big screen above the stage. Here are some photos from the event:
Members of the Signal Art Ensemble positioned themselves among the crowd, to act as ‘ideal participants’ and give some leads to other people with instruments.
