Auckland Jazz Orchestra plays Wayne Senior 

Auckland Jazz Orchestra is a full 17-piece contemporary jazz big band, with a mission to perform music and arrangements from New Zealand musicians and composers. For one special night, the Auckland Jazz Orchestra reunites with renowned arranger Wayne Senior, to play his music under his direction.

Internationally recognised, arranger, composer and educator, Wayne Senior has a storied career. From early years as musical director for Howard Morrison & Television New Zealand, and jazz arranger played by the likes of Bobby Shew, he has taught across Australia & NZ. As a guest musical director for AJO, he brings some favourite arrangements from his book, and some brand new compositions.

Over more than a decade, the AJO has released 3 albums of original jazz & arrangements, and performed at numerous festivals around NZ, including sold out shows at Auckland Arts Festival, Tauranga Jazz Festival and performances at New Zealand Music Awards. They are currently completing an album of works by the late, great, pianist Phil Broadhurst for release in 2023.
