Pianist, composer and Senior Lecturer in Jazz Studies at the University of Auckland School of Music, Kevin Field presents his greatly anticipated and final Doctor of Musical Arts (DMA) recital.

Field, who has been lauded by Jazz journalist John Fenton as, “arguably Auckland’s first call pianist” will share his explorations of the last 6 years, concentrating on articulations of harmonic and rhythmic tensions.

A jazz pianist partial to blending his genres, Kevin’s final recital pledges to deliver an evening full of expectation with a presentation of research informed performance and composition, featuring his refined and distinctive manipulations of tension and harmony, that artfully re-examine the language of jazz.

Joining him are recent School of Music graduates, Michael Howell (guitar), Cameron McArthur (double bass), Stephen Thomas (drums) and fellow Senior Lecturer Roger Manins (saxophone).
