Bebop and modal grooves meet the avant-garde in this daring collab

If you’re looking for a fresh new sound then be sure to check out The Dave Wilson Quintet. Exploring modes of composition and improvisation flowing out of bebop, modal jazz, the avant-garde and the maqam improvisation traditions of the Middle East, their music folds together layers of time and space inspired by the sounds of human and natural environments.

With Callum Allardice on guitar, Hikurangi Schaverien-Kaa on drums, Mike Taylor on trumpet and Chris Beernink on bass, the Quintet brings together some of New Zealand’s most exciting young musicians. Hear them daringly weave together the vibrant strands of their local and international experiences in jazz and popular music.
