WHEN

Thu 18 April, 20:00

WHERE

Baycourt X Space

Presented by: Tauranga Jazz Society

The latest from NZ jazz innovator Jim Langabeer, this eclectic ensemble of Auckland’s leading jazz musicians have been developing a new kind of Aotearoa jazz.

Langabeer’s compositions, Secret Islands, are a series of original jazz pieces that effortlessly assimilate the North American jazz form into an authentic Kiwi context - a deeply unique and soulful sound, one that is authentically their own; deep swinging grooves, curious questioning melodies, sizzling free-jazz movements and the haunting sounds of multiphonics and Taonga Puoro.

Featuring:
Jim Langabeer (flutes, Taonga Puoro, tenor saxophone)  
Rosie Langabeer (piano, keys)  
Roger Manins (alto saxophone) 
Neil Watson (Fender guitar, steel guitar) 
Eamon Edmundson-Wells (bass) 
Chris O’Connor (drums, percussion) 

“subtle, heartstopping, - rich in contrasting colour, rich in character” - John Fenton
