Pianist and composer Kevin Field has collaborated with some of the top international names in jazz including guitarist Nir Felder, bassist Matt Penman and drummer Obed Calvaire, who all feature on his 2015 New York album The A List (Warner Music). He has performed concerts in the UK, USA, Australia and New Zealand and features on over 30 albums by such artists as Nathan Haines, Whirimako Black, Caitlin Smith and The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra. In addition, Kevin has released several of his own albums including the celebrated Field of Vision, also on the Warner Music label.

Kevin is a member of the Dr Dog jazz ensemble, winners of best jazz album at the 2015 NZ Music Awards and is a Senior Lecturer in Jazz Studies at the University of Auckland. His latest group is fresh from the Wellington Jazz Festival where they performed a standing room only show. Kevin is also working on his doctorate exploring harmonic innovation in jazz and new compositions from his research will feature on the night (along with some old gold!).

'Field is undeniably a fine musician who moves between the highly lyrical, the relaxed and the funky in a way that is highly satisfyingly while being spine-tingling.'

Mike Alexander - Sunday Star Times

‘Kevin Field is a very expressive pianist and he won the audience over with his virtuosic solo.’
