SPLENDID ISOLATION


 

John Rae and Ben Wilcock are joined by bassist Patrick Bleakley on this 15 song collaboration  of original material. Featuring guest artists Kevin Murray, Jabin Ward and Daniel Yeabsley this is jazz for the 21st Century, with chaos and beauty this album will take the listener to places they never expected. 

Staying true to the tradition of swing and improvisation, this album features seven fresh compositions from Aotearoa.

"Several observers have already heard the mighty Thad Jones-Mel Lewis band in this team of reservists’ smartly despatched energy and there are echoes of Gil Evans and George Russell in the sense of drama and suspense created."
