Best Jazz Album finalist in the 2016 NZ Music Awards, Concerti may seem an incongruous pairing on the face of it, but Michael Houstoun and Rodger Fox have something vital in common — they love making music!

Their first recording together, Concerti is comprised of four substantial arrangements for jazz orchestra and concert piano that straddles two worlds in celebratation of a common musical language. The music is dynamic, passionate, and extraordinarily rich in terms of its compositional and performance qualities. Simply put, this band kicks! And riding the wave like a seasoned jazz veteran is the fearless Michael Houstoun, matching the ensemble note for note, blow for blow.
