The last time Mike Nock brought his acclaimed Noctet to Foundry616 he received a rave review from John Shand in the Sydney Morning Herald (see below). It was a wonderful night and bound to be repeated when Mike and the Noctet return to Foundry for a special Easter Saturday show on Sat 20 April.
Once again it's an all star line up with Mike on piano and electronics leading Tom Avgenicos on trumpet, saxophonists Karl Laskowski and Peter Farrar, drummer James Waples, trombonist Alex Silver, with two exceptional young players making their debut in bassist Nick Henderson and guitarist Felix Lalanne.
Don't miss this very special Easter Saturday show with Mike and an exceptional band of musicians.
Mike Nock’s life in music spans some 60 years from his early years in New Zealand to playing jazz on the world stage. As a pianist, composer, educator and band leader, Mike has made a huge impact on the Australian jazz scene over the past three decades, an outstanding contribution acknowledged by his receipt of the prestigious Don Banks Award.
His imposing international experience includes some 25 years working in the USA alongside many of the world’s top jazz musicians such as: Coleman Hawkins, Yusef Lateef, John Schofield, John Abercrombie and Michael Brecker. Mike Nock also led the 1960’s seminal jazz-rock fusion group “The Fourth Way” which performed on the same bills as rock bands like the Grateful Dead and Cream. He was one of the first jazz musicians to use the new electric keyboard, the Fender Rhodes, which had a huge impact on the way jazz evolved at that time.
Noctet features both established artists and recognisable exceptional younger players – keeping, as John Shand (Sydney Morning Herald) puts it, “an eye to the future as well as the rear-view mirror“.
