After a highly successful Australia tour the newly formed and truly formidable Antipodes group are about to hit NZ!

Conceived in Berlin in 2013 as a collaboration between Jake Baxendale (NZ) alto sax, Aidan Löwe (Berlin/Canberra) drums and Luke Sweeting (Sydney) on piano to play their own original music, the band also features some of Sydney's most luminous young improvisers; Ken Allars on trumpet and James Heazlewood Dale on double bass. Joining the band in NZ is Callum Jephson Allardice on guitar, fresh from a year playing in Berlin! Between them they have dozens of album credits and have performed and toured in NZ, Australia, Sweden, Germany, Poland and Denmark with the likes of George Benson, Ernie Watts, Mike Nock, James Muller and Steve Smith.

Antipodes 5tet combines memorable and songlike compositions that defy genrefication with an open and expressive improvisational aesthetic. The powerful and diverse technique of the musicians leads these tunes into unexpected emotional territory. Music at it's finest!
