X: The Rodger Fox Big Band Plays New Zealand

The Rodger Fox Big Band

The Rodger Fox Big Band Plays New Zealand is the full title for this album, released simply a X.

The music on X was written entirely by New Zealand composers. For more than 40 years Rodger has made a point of presenting a good range of New Zealand compositions within the the big band’s repertoire, including some 90 works commissioned specifically for the ensemble. In all of that time, the Rodger Fox Big Band has never received a single cent of support from New Zealand arts funding organisations, a fact that he has not been shy about pointing out — and rightly so.

Produced by Rodger Fox and Talley Sherwood, recorded by Troy Kelly, mixed and mastered by Talley Sherwood, designed by UnkleFranc, printed by Studio Q
