The Turner Centre Jazz Club presents:
featuring Calum Dundas (Lead Guitar)
Sean Martin-Buss (Organ)
David Harris (Drums)
Calum Dundas returns home this summer season after a year spent playing and teaching in Auckland. In 2016 he finished three years studying for his Bachelor of Music in Jazz Performance in Wellington. Originally from Kerikeri, Calum played in rock bands through high school before developing a taste for jazz and the year before his departure to Wellington he played with local jazz band, ‘Thelonious Punk’. In his three years studying he played with various bands around Wellington, performing in small groups and big bands while developing his relationship with the music.
On the 26th of January, 2018 he will perform at the Turner Centre’s ‘Jazz Club’ and will be joined by two well accomplished musicians from Auckland who have been taking that city by storm. Calum’s love of playing music consists of many jazz standards from the great American Songbook and tunes by his favourite jazz musicians such as Wes Montgomery, Pat Metheny and Charlie Parker; he also likes to get a little funky.
Joining him once again here in the North will be drummer, David Harris who has been studying for a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Performance at the University of Auckland. David gave an exciting well versed performance when he joined Calum at last January’s ‘Jazz Club.’ We welcome him back.
The sound of the jazz organ will be heard for the first time at the ‘Jazz Club.’ Famous musicians like Jimmy Smith and Jimmy McGriff to name a couple, have been great exponents of the jazz organ and so we are delighted to present their sound played by organist/keyboard musician, Sean Martin-Buss from Auckland.
Sean is a multi-instrumentalist who came burning out of jazz school a while back and has since taken over the music scene in Auckland. He can be seen at well-known venues such as, The Golden Dawn, The Wine Cellar and many more places for lovers of fine music. Along with his talent as an organist and pianist, he is also a composer, saxophonist, and guitarist.
We look forward to witnessing this seriously talented musician right here at our ‘New World Theatre Bar Jazz Club.’
Organ 3men, will offer music from Duke Ellington to Charlie Parker and some funk tunes from groove pioneers such as James Brown. They will also add some of their own compositions.
A summer’s night of fine music is to be witnessed by all Friday 26th January 2018.
A delicious variety of tapas will be available for your selection.
Bar opens on Friday, 26th January 2018 at 5.30pm with Live Jazz from 6.00pm. See you there!
