Lucien Johnson is an award winning musician who has been described as “a saxophonist and composer of rare excellence and mettle” (Wellington Jazz Festival), as “a miraculous musician” (Radio NZ) and as “a composer and arranger of supreme skill” (Dominion Post). He is joined in this quartet by some of New Zealand’s finest musicians: celebrated pianist Jonathan Crayford, and Tom Callwood and Chris O’Connor, one of New Zealand’s most prolific rhythm section teams who have performed together or separately with the likes of the Phoenix Foundation, Don McGlashan and Neil Finn. The Quartet will be perform original compositions from Lucien’s 2017 album ‘West of the Sun’ (nominated for a Tui award for Jazz Artist of the Year) as well as new material from his upcoming album ‘Kairangi’. A wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
