Kaiwhakatere (navigator) is a collection of New Zealand compositions which dives into the metaphorical and literal thoughts behind someone, or something, navigating through its own existence. From deep within the bathyal zone and drifting through relationships, to viewing the sea from up high on land or in fact flying above and spotting your next target, we are all navigators of some sort


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.
