The material for Samsom Nacey Haines' previous album (Oxide) was written by individual members of the trio, but CROSS NOW was collectively composed. The result is a coherent and focused, a strikingly original work from one of New Zealand's finest jazz ensembles.
Where Delayed Reaction was a tribute to legendary jazz pianist/composer, Michel Petrucciani, the compositions on FLAUBERT'S DANCE reflect a wide range of influences in Phil Broadhurst’s writing and performing, from Herbie Hancock and Keith Jarrett to Many Katché, Elaine Elias and Tomaz Stanko.
MANTIS is a celebration of the memory and music of Drew Menzies, featuring Reuben Bradley (drums), Matt Penman (bass), James Illingworth (piano), Roger Manins (sax), and the New Zealand String Quartet playing arrangements by John Psathas.
WALKABOUT is an extended piece for jazz orchestra featuring USA jazz lumineries Alex Sipiagin (trumpet) and Bob Sheppard (tenor saxophone), and the Sydney-based Jazzgroove Mothership Orchestra.
