Original music by Nicole McCabe

For the first time, Nicole McCabe presents her quartet in Pōneke, Aotearoa with her Los Angeles-based group - Michael Orenstein (piano), Jermaine Paul (bass), and Kiwi-born, Lauren Ellis (drums).

Alto saxophonist and composer Nicole McCabe blends a broad range of styles, making her one of the most compelling young artists in today’s West Coast jazz scene. Nicole has played with musicians George Colligan, Peter Erskine, Chuck Israels, Terri Lyne Carrington, Patrice Rushen, Bob Shepard, Jacob Mann, and Doug Webb.

Nicole’s uninhibited dynamism and ear-turning musical prowess have already earned her the attentive audience she deserves throughout the Los Angeles music community and beyond.
