About this Event

Weaving post-bop, modal and experimental influences into subtly evocative song-forms.

Indie jazz-noir duo Karin Reid (voice) and Alex Wolken (electric guitar) team up with Wellington-based Tui award winning composer and bassist Umar Zakaria to present two sets showcasing freshly honed original material, alongside reworked modern jazz gems.

Drawing on the more exploratory elements of their current repertoire, Reid's sultry and compelling voice and Wolken's intricate harmonically rich guitar work weave post-bop, modal jazz and free improvisation influences into their subtly evocative and personal musical vignettes.

Aided by Zakaria's contemplative and fearlessly expressive double bass work, the three strive for deep musical engagement with the space opened up by the new works.

The trio will present most of the set they will perform at the upcoming Wellington Jazz Festival in November. Dunedin audiences get a sneak peak of this ahead of the festival along with some additional classics.

Doors open 7.30pm

Music starts at 8pm with an interval

CASH BAR available serving non-alcoholic refreshments
