This week featuring local saxophonist Jake Baxendale and his quartet
Saxophonist Jake Baxendale presents a set of free-wheeling standards, from the burningest swing to the tear-jerkingest ballads, with his trio featuring the venerable Patrick Bleakley on bass and Scotch maverick John Rae on drums.
Jake is well known in Wellington for his involvement in modern jazz groups The Jac, Antipodes, the Arthur Street Loft Orchestra and party-time bands such as Richter City Rebels, JB3 and Presidents of Funk. Lesser known is his penchant for ripping on some jazz standards, both classic and esoteric. Gigs like this are an opportunity to hear him and his group dig deep into music with no strings attached!
The mighty Koha Tuba will be in full effect if you'd like to support the band
