Event description
Bringing you the next wave of contemporary jazz from Aotearoa

About this event

Drawing inspiration from the likes of Immanuel Wilkins Quartet and the groove-focused and often RnB flavoured work of contemporary jazz pianists such as Robert Glasper, Taylor Eigsti and Chris Fishman, pianist GEORGE MACLAURIN presents two sets of his original compositions and a contemporary take on some classics with a quartet featuring a selection of his favourite Wellington based musicians.

Recently relocated back to Dunedin after a stint studying jazz performance at the New Zealand School of Music in Wellington - where he recently graduated with honours and has been in high demand as a gigging musician playing with local jazz heavyweights - Maclaurin is joined here by a group of his go-to performers: sophisticated electric guitarist LUCA STURNY, talented up-and-coming bassist HARRISON SCHOLES and tasteful drummer LENNOX GROOTJANS for this end of year pre-Christmas concert at the Albany Street Jazz Loft.

Come and experience the emergent craft of this cool and current new wave of electric groove-oriented NZ jazz, and hang in the intimate and vibrant atmosphere of the Albany Street Jazz Loft, upstairs above the Playhouse Theatre as we wind down for 2021. Be sure to catch this specially formed ensemble and Maclaurin before he heads overseas.

DOORS 6PM (come for the social and home-made supper - gf/vegan options)

MUSIC 7PM

CASH BAR (eftpos available)

Please note: tickets purchased online have a seat. If the event sells out, a few door sales will most likely be standing room only. Accessibility to the upstairs space is via stairs.

HARRISON SCHOLES is a Wellington based bass player who is in his fourth year at the New Zealand School of Music majoring in jazz performance and composition . He has played with many local acts such as Arjuna Oakes, Louis Baker, Wiri Donna and the NZSM big bands.

LENNOX GROOTJANS is a recent graduate from NZSM where he studied jazz drums. He is influenced by drummers from many different genres and plays many different styles of music. He currently lives in Te Whanaganui-a-nui (Wellington).
