Jazz on a winter's weekend

From Standing Room Only, 2:40 pm on 27 August 2017

Nigel Patterson honed his keyboard and composition skills playing with seminal New Zealand bands The Black Seeds and Fly My Pretties. But his love of jazz saw him form The Nigel Patterson Quartet back in 2007. His compositions acknowledge the work of jazz greats like Dizzy Gillespie and Duke Ellington, but they also veer off in edgier directions. The quartet is gearing up for a concert at the upcoming Jazz in Martinborough festival on September 2, and Nigel talks to Lynn Freeman about the changing face of jazz.
