Hallertau is very excited to be hosting Jonathan Crayfordís trio Meteor live, Sunday, Sept. 25, from 1.30pm in the last of Hallertauís Month of Sundays series in September.

Jonathan Crayford is perhaps New Zealandís most exciting export to the world of music. This prolific composer, performer and pianist spent 20 years honing his craft in New York, before returning to NZ in the naughties to rock the music scene.

Crayford has most recently been living in Paris and Spain, writing a film/opera and recording two albums of solo piano music in Spain and a trio album in New York.

Acclaimed as a highly original compositional talent, pianist Jonathan Crayford has been responsible for many film soundtracks, albums, and bands. As a sideman he has worked with Kurt Rosenwinkel, David Binney, David Murray, Groove Collective, Amp Fiddler, Questlove, Mambo Macoco, Bruno Lawrence and many others.

ĎHeís an artist embedded so deeply within his music that his persona reflects in those terms. Itís as if he were the embodiment of sonic shapes and forms.í
John Fenton

ĎThis is the kind of piano I totally relate to: exploratory, thoughtful, soulful, focused. Those qualities are all sort of contradictory, or at least contrasting, which is why this kind of work is meaningful: because it is multi-dimensional.í
Thomas Conrad critic for Jazz Time
