Presented by: National Jazz Festival Tauranga
Pianist and composer Kevin Field has collaborated with some of the top international names in jazz including Grammy nominated guitarists Mike Moreno and Nir Felder, and Charles Haynes – drummer/producer for Kanye West and Lada Gaga. He is a well-known name in NZ jazz circles and has performed in the UK, USA and Australia. His latest album Soundtology has just been released in Europe.
In this concert Kevin is joined by one of New Zealand’s greatest expatriate vocalists Bex Peterson.
Originally from Auckland, Bex made her name in the jazz scene before branching out in soul and R & B. Under the stage name Sassy, she is a household name in her current home Fiji.
We are excited to bring these two long time collaborators together for a very special one-off concert featuring originals, standards and jazzy interpretations of iconic kiwi pop tunes.
