Running Sheet: Kym Purling and all that jazz00:00:00 Intro
Introduction to the show.
00:05:14 SA Drink Of The Week
The SA Drink Of The Week is 2017 Levrier Cabernet Franc from the Barossa Valley. We taste it with winemaker, Jo Irvine.
00:11:37 Kym PurlingKym Purling is a gifted pianist who first took the piano by playing songs by ear that he'd heard his sister playing during piano lessons. Fast forward to 2020 and this Adelaide boy (yes, we claim him as ours even though he was born in Vietnam), has toured the world and performed with many of the legendary names from the music world, the likes of Julio Iglasias, James Morrison, Engelbert Humperdink, Natalie Cole, and Harry Connick Jnr. Due to covid, he's back in Adelaide and has generously taken Dave Brubeck's advice to Take 5 with me for a chat about his life and jazz. At the time of recording, you are getting ready for a performance at the Southern Jazz Club at the Anzac Highway, which I can't wait to see. But before we wade into your world of music, I'd like to tease apart a few strands of your story because they really illuminate some of our history from the 70s. I was one of the foundation students at Marion Primary School, starting in its first year of operation in reception and then spending the next 7 years of my life there. At the bottom of the block of land which was originally covered with 6 foot high weeds and grass, was a tree and across the road from that, was a house, all on its own, just south of Westminster. That's where you lived, yes? Your sister, Rebecca Purling was in my class at Marion Primary and I'm not sure if she told you but that tree across from your house was known as the kissing tree, as we hit years 3 and 4. Did you ever experience or witness that action? I started by mentioning this because my recollection of life in the early 70s in Adelaide was one of simplicity, heat, and dust. We had Italian neighbours, who were gregarious and introduced me to beer, and my parents knew just about everybody on the block. But across the sea, the Vietnam War was underway and in that horrid episode of human history, you were born and then estranged from your birth parents, becoming one of the first children to be adopted from that war zone. I know this is still significant in your life, can you share any recollections of that time and your visits back to Vietnam? is it heartening to see how we have adopted Vietnamese cuisine in this country? I was acutely embarrassed to hear you were the subject of racial abuse when you first returned home? And what is home? Can home be more than one place? is it a factor of time spent, or some other type of connection? The story of you being driven to music by Rebecca's piano lessons is fascinating. Was it really a competitive spirit? I ask because my daughters have fierce rivalry and I don't know whether to stop it, encourage it, or just back off. How do you play by ear? Do you visu
