about

RODGER FOX BIG BAND PLAYS NEW ZEALAND

In 42 years leading the Rodger Fox Big Band, I have always tried to present a good range of New Zealand compositions throughout our
performances and recording. 90-something New Zealand compositions have been commissioned for the band, 68 of which have made it onto various recordings and widely performed both in New Zealand and abroad.

The music community in New Zealand hasn’t recognised this fact, and it is my strong belief that our continuing advocacy of New Zealand music is something that should receive funding and support.

This new recording features a further nine New Zealand compositions from a
cross-section of New Zealand composers, including Phil Broadhurst, Nick Granville, Fat Freddy’s Drop, Anita Schwabe, John Rae, Norman Meehan, Roger Manins, and even an offering from me. These very fine home-grown works now have a place within the jazz arena.

I hope that you enjoy this album, a celebration of the wealth of talent we have in this country, from the composers and arrangers to the musicians and technicians, without whom this project wouldn’t have happened. A huge thanks to all of you, and here’s to many more years.

Best as always, Rodger.
