‘In The Pocket’ is a new monthly residency in collaboration between Astral Weeks and Perth International Jazz Festival featuring guests playing their favourite jazz records. In this 4th Edition special guests will be Chris Le and Josh Wells who will be spinning Big Band classics and Swing Dance community favourites like Basie’s Chairman of The Board, Ella in Berlin, and Benny Goodman & His Orchestra.

Chris Le and Josh Wells are Lindy Hop dancers whose love of the dance led to DJ-ing dance events and collecting classic Big Band jazz on vinyl. They have spun at events including Hullabaloo – The Perth Lindy Exchange, Boogie Down South in Margaret River, and Chris DJs regular rotations at The Mustang Bar between sets by Adam Hall & The Velvet Playboys, and The Oz Big Band.
