Tui Nominee and 8 pce locomotion of pure musical energy.

The Jac is an 8-piece locomotion of pure musical energy playing a genre-defying blend of jazz and classical originals with contemporary beats and grooves.

Led by alto saxophonist and composer Jake Baxendale, they feature some of New Zealand’s finest musical talent from the jazz, classical and metal scenes, using these broad musical influences to forge a unique, cohesive sound.

Their debut album Nerve was released on the Rattle Jazz label in 2014 and it has drawn considerable critical success. The release was quickly followed by a New Zealand tour, a packed Wellington Jazz Festival concert, and a tour of Australia. In February 2015 Nerve was nominated for a TUI in NZ Music Awards Best Jazz Album of the year. The results will be announced at the National Jazz Festival, Tauranga in April, where they will perform.

Sitting somewhere between a small combo and a full big band, the four horn, four rhythm instrumentation of The Jac is highly flexible, capable of both explosive power and also quiet intimacy. Reviewer John Fenton said of the line-up “It is all too rare to see such configurations in New Zealand and I wish more would surface.”.
