about

Canadian-born composer and trumpet player Dave Lisik came to New Zealand in early 2010 to teach jazz composition and theory at the NZ School of Music in Wellington. In a relatively short time he initiated a great number of diverse and exciting projects, and we are proud to release the first of these, The Curse of the Queen’s Diamond.

This is a highly concentrated work, intimate, searching, playful, expansive, and intensely focused. This is jazz at its most probing and exploratory, an album for connoisseurs.

"Featuring a stellar ensemble by local standards, you’d have to have ears of cloth and a soul of cast iron not to get a charge from ensemble playing like this. The album is the perfect vindication of Rattle’s philosophy that they are not interested in musical barriers." – William Dart, The Critic's Chair
