Canadian trumpeter and composer Mike Field is heading back to New Zealand this summer!
Field is celebrating his second album ‘Rush Mode’ with a second New Zealand TOUR at Le Café in Picton on December 29th 2014.

Field will be joined by local New Zealand musicians.

Since the release of his first album Ashes in 2011, brilliant jazz man Mike Field has been on the move gigging from one big city to the next – traveling as far afield as Germany, France, Italy, Portugal, Ukraine and even on board a ship to Antarctica. He plays regularly in Los Angeles and Toronto, all the while composing a continuous stream of new material.

Field’s new album ‘Rush Mode’ is an eclectic collection of jazz tunes ranging from classic bebop to Latin-flavoured romps. The through line is as the title suggests, a portrait of the way we live our busy lives, though Field’s take is definitely more on the positive side.

The Mike Field Jazz Quintet plays in Picton at Le Café on December 29th 2014, at the Nelson Jazz Festival on January 1st and 2nd 2015 in Nelson and Mapua, at the Mussle Inn in Takaka on January 6th 2015, at a private venue in the Wairau Valley on January 9th 2015 and at the Summertimes Festival in Christchurch on January 11th. More dates for the New Zealand 2014 / 2015 summer TOUR will be announced soon!
