Classic and original funk and soul. Oh, yeah
JB3 have been doing the grind in bars and clubs all over the city for years, developing a deeply grooving sound with adventurous improvisational interplay. Whilst drawing on the funk and soul jazz stylings of ’50s and ’60s era Blue Note recordings, JB3 bring their own flavour with their original tunes and interpretations of classic jams.
Joining them at the Wellington Jazz Festival is award-winning guitarist Peter Koopman. Born in New Zealand, Pete has been a fixture of the Sydney jazz scene since 2011, performing with his own trio, Katie Noonan's Vanguard, jazz-metalheads Scordatura and jazz/apparel enthusiasts The Turtlenecks, among many others.
