Bringing Ōtepoti the next wave of contemporary jazz in Aotearoa

About this event

** Please note the different timings below - concert is 7pm - 9.30pm**

Exciting original jazz music from one of New Zealand’s finest saxophonists, Frank Talbot presents a range of emotional, ambitious and lively new music featuring some of Wellington’s most in demand players. Talbot's hot off the press original compositions are based on stories and experiences in which he expands on his harmonic and rhythmic palette.

Talbot brings a range of influence in his compositions. As a big fan of varying genres including jazz, classical, heavy metal, funk and having performed and recorded with indie artists, prog bands, modern metal projects and pop/funk outfits, he has a versatile range while remaining steeped in the jazz tradition.

Originally hailing from Devonport, Talbot moved to Wellington in 2016 on a scholarship to study at the New Zealand School of Music where he gained his degree. Since moving, he’s quickly made a name for himself, as a Concerto Competition finalist, twice winner of the annual combo competition and section leader in the big band. This led to opportunities outside the university, joining the Rodger Fox Big Band, including touring and recording in New Orleans and New York, the Royal New Zealand Air Force, the Julie Lamb Outfit and twice being selected to tour and record in Eastern Europe with the JM Jazz World Orchestra.

“New Zealand produces many good tenor players, and judging by Talbot’s confident performance, he will go from strength to strength” – John Fenton, JazzLocal32
