Jessica  Cunniffe reviews the premiere of ‘Zashto?’ performed by the Mara! Big Band at the Riverside Theatre in Parramatta on 3 March 2022.

“Steely concentration was palpable at the opening; a giant engine turning over for the first time. But as Sandy Evans wrestled a gritty, otherworldly tenor saxophone solo into existence, the whole thing roared to life.” Jessica Cunniffe, SMH
