Steve Barry and Aaron Blakey, two New Zealand-ish pianists we have taken for our own. Both are composers of beautiful tunes from personal experience. Both are versatile technical players with a great feel for the keyboard. And both know how to tell a story through a tune, to leave an image of the composition which lasts after the specifics have been forgotten.
Steve has played for us a dozen times, but never solo. Aaron and Steve jam together all the time. Come and hear the new generation of great jazz players.
