The 57th National Jazz Festival presents a fantastic programme of events in Tauranga this Easter from 18 to 21 April 2019, showcasing performances from some of the best jazz musicians from right here in Aotearoa and around the world.

Charlie Parker with Strings: Featuring from New York - Dick Oatts, and The New Zealand String Quartet - where classical and jazz worlds find common ground.

American alto-saxophonist Dick Oatts combines with The New Zealand String Quartet under the musical direction of iconic Kiwi jazz musician Rodger Fox in a concert that pays homage to legendary saxophonist Charlie Parker and his most memorable work Charlie Parker with Strings.

Featuring jazz standards capturing the romantic and melodic side of this Bebop giant - hear swinging rhythms with lush strings and a twist of Bebop.

Dick Oatts is an international featured soloist best known as the lead alto player in the Thad Jones| Mel Lewis Jazz Orchestra from the late 70s and still holds down that role in the present day incarnation the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra.
