Positif is Phil’s fourth album featuring this particular line-up of excellent musicians, but it is the ensemble’s first “live” recording. Several of the tunes had been performed as concert material, but all were either written or arranged after the release of Phil’s 2016 Jazz Album of the Year release, Panacea.

Phil Broadhurst
Phil is one of New Zealand’s leading jazz artists. He was Head of Jazz Studies at the New Zealand School of Music (Massey University, Auckland) from 2000 to 2016, and in 2008 was awarded an M.Phil for his thesis on French jazz pianist Michel Petrucciani. In 2001 he became the first jazz musician to be awarded the MNZM for services to jazz.

Well-known as a broadcaster, he presented a weekly jazz programme called The Art of Jazz on Radio New Zealand Concert for over 20 years. His numerous credits include performing at major jazz festivals and events in New Zealand, Australia, the USA, UK and France, and collaborating with many jazz greats visiting NZ, such as Johnny Griffin, RonnieScott, and Scott Hamilton.

Positif is his fourth album for Rattle, following his “dedication trilogy”, Delayed Reaction (Jazz Album of the Year finalist, 2011), Flaubert’s Dance (Jazz Album of the Year finalist, 2013), and Panacea, which was awarded the Tui for Jazz Album of the Year in 2016. This was the fourth time that an album of Phil’s compositions received the award, confirming what can only be described as a substantial and highly-revered career.
