Nathan Haines in Concert
New Zealand's most famous jazz musician and saxophonist is to perform at Devonport's Victoria Picture Palace and Theatre on Friday May 18. After spending a week in the top 20 after it's March release, Nathan's stunning new acoustic quartet recording "The Poet's Embrace" will be performed live in it's entirety for this very special evening concert. Hailed unanimously by critics as Haines's finest album, "The Poet's Embrace" has re-written the book for acoustic analog jazz in this country and beyond, and the live show will reflect the exciting, live and improvised nature of hearing a real quartet in top form. Joining Nathan will be Kevin Field, one of the New Zealand's finest pianists and a long-term collaborator of Haines, plus acoustic bassist Ben Turua and drummer Steve Thomas. Last year Nathan played to a sold-out audience at London's legendary Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club, and June sees his permanent return to UK shores, so catch this very special concert while you can.
