Jimmy Rainey in action

Where: River Kitchen  @ 5pm
When: Wednesday 3rd January 2018

Saxophonist Jimmy Rainey is excited to return to the Nelson Jazz Festival in 2018, and he’s lucky to be joined by a fine group of friends and musicians from around New Zealand. His quartet will perform a mixture of original music and well-known jazz standards, and features Brad Kang (guitar), Bradley Grainger (bass) and Hikurangi Schaverian-Kaa (drums).
Jimmy is currently studying in Amsterdam, where he has been fortunate enough to work and perform with Dick Oatts, Terell Stafford, Jesse van Ruller and John Clayton. Previously he was based in Christchurch, where he completed his Bachelor of Music in 2015.
