Come and sit around the piano in Massey University's world-class recording studio and join one of New Zealand’s most expressive jazz pianists for an intimate performance and live recording session. A highly skilled musician who is versed in many genres, James Illingworth turns his attention to where he can truly shine, the art of solo jazz piano. Weaving together his emotive original compositions with freestyle improvisations, he brings his musical concepts to life and to tape.

“… he has plenty of good to say and so many good ways to show how he can say it”
Simon Sweetman, Off The Tracks

“… I hesitate to single out one member but James Illingworth’s piano simply stole the show”
Colin Morris, Dominion Post

"... jazz pianist James Illingworth runs virtuosic rings around a slow skanking groove"
Nick Bollinger, Listener / Noted
