Inverted: the music of Phil Broadhurst
Auckland Jazz Orchestra presents a heartfelt tribute to the late New Zealand jazz pianist and composer Phil Broadhurst (1949–2020).
A programme of ten new arrangements of Broadhurst’s original compositions for 17-piece contemporary jazz big band, and accompanying album, Inverted.
Broadhurst sadly passed away in 2020, before completion of this project, but his impact on jazz in Aotearoa cannot be overstated. Through his storied career as a pianist, composer, bandleader, broadcaster and educator, he championed original music and musicians, and was the first jazz musician awarded an MNZM in 2001 for services to music. We offer these wonderful sounds to his legacy.
