VillageMusic proudly presents Jonathan Crayford in Concert with Mostyn Cole & Miguel Fuentes.

Jonathan Crayford is an award winning pianist, multi-instrumentalist and film
composer from New Zealand. Immersing himself in the New York scene,
Jonathan worked with notable musicians honing his talent in the genres of Jazz,
Latin jazz, Funk and Classical music. He has worked with Kurt Rosenwinkel,
David Binney, Mambo Macoco, Groove Collective, David Murray, Tony Allen,
Questlove, Macy Gray, Bobby Carcasses and many others internationally. His
last two (trio) albums feature Ben Street and Dan Weiss. Having an original
approach to composition, Jonathan has been involved in many film
soundtracks, albums, and bands.

Here's a word from Jonathan:
Speaking of Mambo Macoco mentioned above as pertains to upcoming Mt Eden concert:
I’m lucky enough to have the opportunity to put a small band together featuring the great
mastery of Miguel Fuentes on congas and percussion. He is a seasoned practitioner of all
kinds of groove music especially Afro/Cuban anything. Joined by the equally savant Mostyn
Cole on bass I will be presenting some tunes out of the book of Mambo Macoco – Latin Jazz
to those who need their genre fix. We will also present some new tunes off the page. Please
come, listen and dance to this wonderful and joyous energy.

Some quotes:
A huge talent, Jonathan is a true original who explores creative musical
opportunities, when or wherever they might arise. I consider him to be
one of the very finest creative musical talents to have ever come
from Aotearoa. - Mike Nock
"He’s an artist embedded so deeply within his music that his persona
reflects in those terms. It’s as if he were the embodiment of sonic shapes
and forms." - John Fenton
"This is the kind of piano I totally relate to: exploratory, thoughtful, soulful,
focused. Those qualities are all sort of contradictory, or at least
contrasting, which is why this kind of work is meaningful: because it is
multi-dimensional." - Thomas Conrad Jazz Times
