Mike Nock – back by popular demand at Foundry616!
Foundry616 presents another exceptional night dedicated to the dynamic piano quartet with pianist Mike Nock.
A prolific composer and recording artist, Mike Nock’s life in music spans some 60 years from his early years in New Zealand to playing jazz on the world stage. As a pianist, composer, educator and band leader, Mike has made a huge impact on the Australian jazz scene over the past three decades, an outstanding contribution acknowledged by his receipt of the prestigious Don Banks Award. Based in Sydney since 1986, he previously spent 25 years in the USA working, touring and recording with many of the world’s top jazz artists.
“There’s a glint to Nock’s playing and a buoyancy in his leadership” (Downbeat USA)
His imposing international experience includes some 25 years working in the USA alongside many of the world’s top jazz musicians such as: Coleman Hawkins, Yusef Lateef, John Scofield, John Abercrombie and Michael Brecker. Mike Nock also led the 1960’s seminal jazz-rock fusion group “The Fourth Way” which performed on the same bills as rock bands like the Grateful Dead and Santana. He was one of the first jazz musicians to use the new electric keyboard, the Fender Rhodes, which had a huge impact on the way jazz evolved at that time.
Also inducted into the Bell Awards Australian Jazz Hall of Fame and awarded the New Zealand Order of Merit (ONZM), his biography SERIOUS FUN – the Life and Music of Mike Nock captures some of his illustrious career moments.
