Phenomenal US jazz artists, Charlie Porter (trumpet) & David Rozenblatt (drums) join respected NZ musicians Mat Fields (bass) & Nick Granville (guitar) for a one-off jazz session in the Nelson School of Music Auditorium.
With a sweeping collection of new music, acclaimed trumpeter/composer Charlie Porter gathers a dynamic group of forward-looking musicians to celebrate America’s rich immigrant history. The ensemble burns and soars while embracing many global influences that have found their way into the music, including elements from Porter’s Lebanese/Greek/Italian heritage, all while fully living in the essence and language of jazz.
Internationally acclaimed trumpeter & composer Charlie Porter first cut his teeth on the New York jazz scene, while simultaneously studying classical trumpet performance at The Juilliard School under the tutelage of famed trumpeter & composer Wynton Marsalis.
