Gig Information

Wellington Jazz Cooperative (WJC) is pleased to present Ari Hoenig Group (USA) for 2 dates during the Wellington Jazz Festival.

Ari is known for emphasizing complex rhythms in direct harmony with other group members, elevating drumming as an indispensable part of the performance. He has an unique ability to modify the pitch of a drum by using drum sticks, mallets, and even parts of his body. Using this technique, he can play any note in the chromatic scale, virtually any melody, and even improvise on a chord structure in the same way as any other instrumentalist would.

Currently, his group tours worldwide and performs weekly at the legendary New York jazz club Smalls. Ari has performed/recorded with include Jean Michel Pilc, Mike Stern, Kenny Werner, Joshua Redman, Wayne Krantz, Kurt Rosenwinkel, ChrisPotter, Toots Thielemans, Pat Martino. For this concert Ari will be joined by outstanding piano/organist Nitai Hershkvits (USA).
