Gig Information

The Nigel Patterson Quartet was formed in 2007 out of a love for jazz and a vision for composing and performing original jazz inspired compositions.

The NPQ combines expert musicianship with passion and creativity. Led by Nigel Patterson, one of New Zealandís finest keyboardists/composers (The Black Seeds, Fly My Pretties) with support from Blair Latham (The Little Blast Orchestra, Jazz Robots) on tenor saxophone, Tom Callwood (Little Bushman, Phoenix Foundation) on bass and Peter Elliot on drums

Inspired by such greats as Thelonious Monk, Duke Ellington, Mal Waldron, McCoy Tyner and many others the NPQ creates a contemporary, sophisticated and digestable take on the jazz idiom.

From alternative metres through mood ballads and up-tempo swings, the NPQ seeks to bring through the edgier side of jazz while retaining the melodic and emotional character of the music.

Nigel Patterson - Keys
Blair Latham - Sax
