To celebrate International Jazz Day, ABC JAZZ is featuring the iconic Maria Schneider live with the JMO, recorded at the 2015 Sydney Festival. Tune in at 9pm on April 30

For the 2015 Sydney Festival, the JMO headed a double bill set at the City Recital Hall, with the Belgian pianist Jef Neve and the GRAMMY award winning composer and arranger Maria Schneider.

ABC Jazz was able to record the concert, and on this special episode of Thursday Night Live, you can hear the second set with Maria Schneider.
