Concert One (Nock/Harrison)
Taking out the National Jazz Award for piano, Jackson Harrison is one of the most exciting players to emerge in recent times and tonight he plays on the same bill as his mentor Australasian master of jazz, Mike Nock.
New Zealand born pianist/composer Mike Nock is one of the acknowledged masters of jazz in Australasia. His reputation rests partly on his imposing international experience which includes twenty-five years working in the USA with many of the world’s top jazz musicians such as Coleman Hawkins, Yusef Lateef, Dionne Warwick, Michael Brecker, a large catalogue of critically acclaimed, internationally released recordings, and substantial body of original compositions in print and on recordings.
