Ben Wilcock Quartet
When: 7.30 pm, 01 August 2023
Where: Lake Wanaka Centre
Duration: 90 minutes
Hailed as “bold and stylistically varied” (The Modernist, PBS FM), Ben Wilcock’s latest album The River Tethys includes a harmonious mix of contemporary takes on jazz standards and original melodies. Audiences can expect to hear impressive improvisations and refreshing arrangements of classics such as 1930s show tune Star Eyes and Dizzy Gillespie’s Groovin’ High. Some of Aotearoa’s best known and most impressive jazz musicians, Wilcock’s outfit brings acoustic music which ebbs and flows, with up-tempo sections and melodic ballads.
