“With four horns up front, Wellington ensemble The Jac assault the senses in the best possible way.” – Jon Fenton

The Jac follow their 2014 Rattle debut, Best Jazz Album finalist Nerve with The Green Hour, an album of seven self-penned compositions that give every member of the ensemble ample scope to shine – particularly the composers!

Recorded at Orange Studios in Christchurch, The Green Hour is every bit as dynamic and intelligent as its predecessor, a confident, assured, highly literate example of contemporary jazz ensemble writing and performing.

The quality of the compositions are striking for their seemingly effortlessly negotiated complexity, and equally fluent melodicism. The Jac are deliciously vociferous musicians, and their evident love of music is infectious. If you’re a fan of ensemble jazz, and particularly the kind of jazz that seeks a dialogue with the best contemporary excursions into the genre, The Green Hour is a must.
