Journeys in Sound: New music from Aotearoa and the world.

A powerhouse collective of Canada’s leading jazz composers and improvisers, CODE Quartet features original compositions that draw from each member’s unique background.

Strongly rooted in the jazz tradition, the chordless quartet features saxophonist Christine Jensen, Tui-award winning trumpeter Lex French, bassist Adrian Vedady and drummer Jim Doxas.

Together they create a soundscape that is diverse and refined, providing an exciting and engaging listening experience.

CODE Quartet will premiere new Wellington Jazz Festival commissions from New Zealand composers Jasmine Lovell-Smith and Lex French. The compositions are inspired by the themes of homecoming and loss and the works of James K. Baxter and Gordon Walters.

Partnered by All That Jazz.
