Jazz As Concert!

The Brook Sanctuary and Bowater Honda, in association with the Nelson Jazz Club Inc present "It's Jazz As!" Three delicious courses of Nelson Jazz featuring the Nelson Youth Jazz Orchestra, Freewheelin' and the Nelson Jazz Club Big Band.

The Nelson Youth Jazz Orchestra was founded in 2013 by Iain Clark and Chris Harris. The aim of the NYJO is to provide high school aged students in the Nelson/Tasman district with the opportunity to meet once a week and play in an improvisation-based ensemble.

The Freewheelin’ band was established ten years ago and has flourished through several membership changes. The line-up includes the wonderful Sophie Ricketts as guest vocalist. Band members Chris Harris (trumpet), Annabel Boyes (tenor sax), Dai Minamizawa (keyboards), Jak Karaitiana (bass), and Drew Matheson (drums) will brighten up your evening and set your feet in motion.

The Nelson Jazz Club Big Band has been in existence for more than twenty years - styled after the great bands of the Forties and Fifties – and is a traditional stage band that plays syncopated written arrangements with improvised interludes.
