Since 2010, the 8-piece ensemble The Jac has been a leading voice in the New Zealand jazz scene, pushing a modern sound with their distinctive, through-composed compositions, tight ensemble playing and impressive live shows.
Based in Wellington and drawing talent from Melbourne and Montreal, the band brings together musicians from the jazz, classical and metal scenes. Celebrating 10 years as a band with a new 10-track album, “A Gathering” is the strongest statement of their sound to date. Featuring the long-form compositions that have become their signature, their new music also includes more open, textural improvisations, and pieces that are heavily influenced by their 2017 tour of Korea, where they collaborated with traditional / jazz fusion group Black String.
