International jazz stars Alex Sipiagin (trumpet), Bob Sheppard (tenor sax) and Steve Houghton (drums) will join the NZSM Big Bands directed by Rodger Fox in this extraordinary gala concert, a highlight of the inaugural NZSM Jazz Festival. All three guest artists are vastly experienced musicians with an extensive performance and recording pedigree which, between them, includes collaborations with artists such as Randy and Michael Brecker, Eric Clapton, Elvis Costello, Steely Dan, Rod Stewart, Stevie Wonder, Gary Burton and Toots Thielemans.
Following the Sonny Rollins concert in June, this is the major jazz event in Wellington for 2011. It will be a fantastic concert that jazz fans will not want to miss.
