Since returning from a year in Berlin in 2014, Callum Allardice has been busy writing, performing and touring New Zealand and Australia with various jazz groups. That year he released Nerve on Rattle Records with Wellington eight-piece The Jac, which was nominated for the New Zealand Music Awards Best Jazz Album of the year. Their latest album, The Green Hour, has received praise from reviewers at RNZ, NZ Musician and The Dominion Post.

The opening track, Sons of Thunder, written by Callum, won Best Jazz Composition 2016 at the national music awards. His guitar playing, described as “soaring as if free of gravity”, is at the cutting edge of the modern jazz sound, drawing equally from modern greats such as Kurt Rosenwinkel, the tradition of Wes Montgomery and the harmony of Mozart. Recent performances of the Callum Allardice Quintet have revealed a captivating new direction for his small group writing and playing.
