A visual journey through 15 years of jazz

Celebrating 15 years of excellence in jazz music, The Ellington Jazz Club stands as a beacon of artistic brilliance in Western Australia and beyond. Since its inception, The Ellington has not only brought top-tier musicians to Perth but has also solidified its place as a cornerstone of the jazz community, offering a home for the high-calibre of local talent, emerging artists, and earning global recognition as the premier destination for jazz enthusiasts.

Throughout its remarkable journey, The Ellington Jazz Club has been immortalized through the lenses of talented photographers who have skillfully captured the club’s essence and its vibrant community. Angelyne Wolfe, Nathan Bullivant, Steven Emmerson, Ewa Ginal-Cumblidge, and Corey James are among the photographers whose work illuminates the unique spirit of The Ellington Jazz Club.

In a captivating visual journey curated by Angelyne Wolfe, author of the acclaimed book “Hot Nights Cool Jazz,” these photographers showcase their distinct perspectives, offering a rich tapestry of live music moments, the diverse community that calls The Ellington home, the club’s hidden corners, and the untold stories that weave together to form the club’s dynamic character.

“From conception to inception, The Ellington Jazz Club has been a hub of creativity and musical excellence,” says Angelyne Wolfe. “Through the lens of these talented photographers, we invite you to immerse yourself in the soulful ambiance, the electrifying performances, and the intimate moments that define The Ellington experience.”

This visual journey not only commemorates The Ellington Jazz Club’s 15-year legacy but also pays homage to the enduring spirit of jazz music and its power to unite communities and inspire generations.
