Unwind’ is saxophonist Hayden Chisholm’s New Zealand-based project, and tours annually. The group performs original music that, although flavoured by chamber music, Indian raga and various folk traditions, is somewhere close to the republic of jazz.
Joining Hayden is renowned bassist Paul Dyne (Sustenance, Mike Nock, Malcolm McNeill) and Paul’s son, percussion master Julien Dyne (Ladi6, Fat Freddies Drop). Pianist and composer Norman Meehan completes the group.
Unwind’s first eponymous album was a finalist for Jazz Album of the Year in 2018.
