Vicissitudes: Mike Nock Trio & NZTrio (New Zealand)
1 Feb 2016 - 30 Nov 2019
Cool cats of jazz and the rock stars of classical music share the stage for this programme featuring two of New Zealand's best-loved musical groups - the Mike Nock Trio and NZTrio.
This celebration of musical talent features the Mike Nock Trio playing jazz standards and originals, and NZTrio performing the latest smooth sounds from Australasian and US composers. The two groups seamlessly blend to perform Mike Nock's work for two trios - Vicissitudes - reflecting on our shared ability to overcome dire circumstances.
One of the world's key jazz pianists for the past 45 years.
