Chisholm | Meehan | Dyne




Hayden Chisholm (saxophone)
Norman Meehan (piano)
Paul Dyne (bass)


Following Small Holes in the Silence, an album of exceptional settings of New Zealand poetry performed with vocalist Hannah Griffin, Hayden Chisholm and Norman Meehan have teamed up again, this time with renowned Wellington bass player, Paul Dyne.

Recorded at the end of Hayden's New Zealand tour in November 2016, Unwind features a set of original compositions beautifully played by this fine jazz trio. Hayden's exquisite saxophone playing is front and centre, but it is the intuitive understated musicality of this highly experienced trio that makes this recording a very special listening experience indeed.
