The Chris Mason-Battley Group constantly explore the fertile boundaries of jazz territory - from Two Tides, their collaboration with renowned taonga puoro performer Richard Nunns to their latest Rattle release, Dialogos, an improvisation-based interpretation of John Psathas compositions.

Drawing on material from both these albums along with other original compositions, CMB Group will bring aperformance with a wide dynamic and emotional range, rich in colour, texture, and space.
“Diálogos is a revelation. I don’t know what the language is that properly describes what the guys are doing, but they’re somehow creating new works. This isn’t ‘arranging’ or ‘adapting’ " I feel it’s better described as continuing the composing process.” " John Psathas
