DMA Recital 3, Sunday 12th May 2013 @ Kenneth Myers Centre, Shortland St.

I am very excited about this particular recital,  this is my biggest band yet with the talents of Stephen Morton-Jones (saxes), Kim Paterson (horns), Dixon Nacey (guitar), Jo Shum (bass) and Alex Freer (drums).  All the pieces are my own compositions, inspired by and linked to the music of Brad Mehldau.  The compositions have a melodic bent, firm emphasis being placed on thematic strength over complexity for complexities sake.  Perhaps a musical pitfall of academic environments such as a formal recital, is the danger of placing too much emphasis on the intellectual and technical, and  not enough on the artistic and musical.  I hope to help set the balance straight during this recital, and I look forward to seeing you at the Kenneth Myers Centre, Sunday 12th May at 3pm.
