CJC Creative Jazz Club Aotearoa, in association with the Auckland Jazz Festival, WJC Wellington Jazz Co-operative, Orange Studios, and supported by KBB Music & Backbeat, proudly present a living master of the tenor saxophone: George Garzone.

"I'm not the master of the sax, George Garzone is." - Michael Brecker

The most highly renowned musician and educator, Garzone visits New Zealand for the first time for a series of intimate shows in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

A veteran jazzman, George Garzone has appeared on more than 20 recordings. In addition, Garzone has guested in many situations, touring Europe with Jamaaladeen Tacuma and performing with Danilo Perez, Joe Lovano, Jack DeJohnette, Rachel Z, and John Patitucci among others. He is a member of the Grammy-winning Joe Lovano Nonet, and performed and recorded with this group at the Village Vanguard.

Garzone is well-known as a sought-after jazz educator, who, in addition to teaching at Berklee, has taught at the New England Conservatory, Longy School of Music, New York University, and the Manhattan School of Music. Students of his have included Joshua Redman, Branford Marsalis, Teadross Avery, Luciana Souza, Mark Turner, Donny McCaslin, Doug Yates, and Danilo Perez, to name a few.

George has pioneered a unique method of improvisation, the Triadic Chromatic approach, and will also be giving lectures and workshops demonstrating this concept.
