The WJC Roger Sellers Emerging Artist Series was established to remember and pay tribute to much loved and respected drummer, educator, and mentor Roger Sellers. Dedicating his life to the art form of jazz, he was a consulate and prolific jazz musician who performed with countless international and local groups.

For this concert, we will feature two outstanding students from NZSM, Ella Dunbar-Wilcox and Seth Boy. Each artist will suite of original compositions.

Ella Dunbar-Wilcox presents a programme of original material and tributes to performers such as Cecile McLorin Salvante and Betty Carter. She will be joined by Ben Stewart (p), Seth Boy (b), James Feekes (d) and Lily Shaw (ts).

The Seth Boy trio is inspired by the great piano trios of old, and by the big band concept of the likes Count Basie and Thad Jones. Much like his compositions and arrangements, Seth's bass playing is assertive, driving, and involved. Joined by Leonardo Coghini (p) and James Feekes (d).
