Hailed as “bold and stylistically varied” Ben Wilcock’s Quartet delivers a harmonious mix of contemporary takes on jazz standards and original melodies, including impressive improvisations and refreshing arrangements of classics such as 1930s show tune Star Eyes and Dizzy Gillespie’s Groovin’ High. Some of Aotearoa’s best known jazz musicians join accomplished pianist Ben Wilcock including the talented Tristan Carter on violin, Dan Yeabsley on double bass, and award-winning drummer John Rae.
