A showcase of some of NZs exceptional young talent.
Grand Bacharachian orchestrations, cosmic mid-70s jazz, pop and funk, krautrock, and Keith Jarrett are among the inspirations for pianist/keyboardist and composer Joe Kaptein's current musical project The Joe Kaptein Quartet.
Since arriving in Auckland from Whangarei, Joe graduated from jazz school and has been developing, recording, and producing an album of his own music, overdubbing all the instruments himself at home.
Joe is an electrifying performer, mature beyond his years, and will be playing a mix of his originals and a few covers of some exquisite 70s pop songs.
Joe Kaptein is upfront on keyboards and will be joined by Andrew Isdale on saxophone, George Brajkovich on drums, and Wil Goodinson on bass.
