Ben Wilcock Quartet

Whats On

Aroha Music Society is thrilled to present the Ben Wilcock Quartet in partnership with Chamber Music New Zealand. Pianist and composer Ben Wilcock is joined by some of Aotearoa’s best jazz musicians to showcase his latest album, The River Tethys.

For his nationwide tour, the stellar jazz pianist is joined by Wellington-based artists Tristan Carter on violin, Dan Yeabsley on double bass, and award-winning drummer John Rae.

Wilcock’s outfit—the same talented line-up of musicians featured on the studio recording—shines as an ensemble with its dynamic voice and melodic clarity. Along with Wilcock’s original compositions, expect the quartet’s live performance to include impressive improvisations and refreshing arrangements of jazz standards. Wilcock’s science-fiction inspired River Tethys also features the 1930s show tune Star Eyes, Dizzy Gillespie’s Groovin’ High, and Irish slip jig The Butterfly.

The Ben Wilcock Quartet delivers a harmonious mix of contemporary takes on jazz standards and original melodies. Artists Ben Wilcock, piano, Tristan Carter, violin, Daniel Yeabsley, bass and John Rae, percussion
