World-renowned saxophonist Dave Ades, pictured front, listens to the rhythms of Greg Sheehan’s Utungun Percussion at his benefit gig last Wednesday at the Bangalow Bowlo.
Dave, who recently underwent treatment in Germany for lung cancer, says the results look promising with the tumour reducing in size. The night drew around 400, with businesses also contributing to door prizes. Dave told Echonetdaily he was overwhelmed and gave thanks and love to everyone who supported him. Another benefit was held at Sydney’s 505 jazz club the following night.
