New Zealand's favourite jazz musician and saxophonist Nathan Haines is to perform at CJC with his new quartet on May 30.

After spending a week in the top 20 after it's March release, Nathan's stunning new acoustic quartet recording "The Poet's Embrace" will be performed live in it's entirety for this very special evening concert. Breaking any previous records for an instrumental record, "The Poet's Embrace" has sold over 3000 copies, and has earned Haines a new legion of fans with it's beguiling analog warmth and superb musicianship.

Hailed unanimously by critics as Haines's finest album, "The Poet's Embrace" has re-written the book for acoustic jazz in this country and beyond, and the live show will reflect the exciting, live and improvised nature of hearing a real quartet in top form.

Joining Nathan will be Kevin Field, one of the New Zealand's finest pianists and a long-term collaborator of Haines, plus acoustic bassist Ben Turua and drummer Steve Thomas.

Last year Nathan played to a sold-out audience at London's legendary Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club, and June sees his permanent return to UK shores, so catch this very special concert while you can.

Please check out these recent links of Nathan Haines playing material from the "The Poet's Embrace:

"It's everything I love about the 'classic' period of jazz - it's warm, it swings, it's intimate, and as the title would suggest, it's poetic in a lyrical sense" - 5 stars, Sunday Star Times.

"The playing is all beautifully tasteful and nuanced. It feels like a classic ensemble record - one that's cool not for it's innovation, but because it sounds like the greats." - 5 stars, New Zealand Herald.

"It's reflective, calming, celebratory but also absolutely pure jazz. It's like something from another age." - Greg Dixon, Canvas Magazine, New Zealand Herald.

"It is the best jazz album made in New Zealand ever and probably the best jazz album I’ve heard in years.
His playing is amazing. Tender melody lines. Explosive riffs. Comprehensive technique. He is in total control of his instrument." - Andrew Dickens, Newstalk ZB website
