Visiting New York based saxophonist and composer Jacam Manricks performs a jazz concert at the NZSM Concert Hall in Wellington bringing fellow New Yorkers Desmond White (bass) and Jochen Rueckert (drums) with him. Multi award winning and internationally acclaimed, Jacam's work has been praised by the New York Times, Time-Out-NY, JazzTimes and Downbeat.

Sri Lankan/Portuguese Australian born saxophonist/composer Jacam Manricks was raised in an extremely musical family. His parents were resident classical musicians in the state symphony in his hometown of Brisbane and his grandfather was a famous Portuguese jazz clarinetist and saxophonist in Sri Lanka. As a child Jacam frequently attended his parents’ symphony concerts and was introduced to jazz at home through his fathers’ jazz record collection. Due to these surroundings, Jacam was able to build a diverse musical foundation from a young age that combined jazz and classical music, two genres that continue to influence his music today. Jacam began studying piano at age 5 and the alto saxophone at 9. His formal musical training continued in New York in 2001, culminating with a Doctor of Musical Arts degree in jazz composition/performance/ pedagogy from the Manhattan School of Music in 2007.

Te Kōkī, New Zealand School of Music (NZSM) is pleased to support Jacam's performance in Wellington. NZSM is a joint enterprise of Massey University and Victoria University of Wellington.
