About the Event

Mark Lockett ‘Swings and Roundabouts’ Australian Album release tour 13-25 April 2023

Powerhouse drummer or tasteful timekeeper, you decide.  Top Kiwi drummer Mark Lockett is set to celebrate his seventh album release, ‘Swings and Roundabouts’. Recorded recently in New York, a chordless quartet also featuring top NY heavyweights David Binney, Duane Eubanks and Matt Penman.  Masterful improvisations in a cutting-edge setting.

During lockdown Lockett penned nine original compositions inspired by his love of the past, jazz giant Ornette Coleman and drawing on the modern sound of his contemporaries.

Album was released on 01 Feb 2023 and to celebrate Mark is embarking on an eight-concert nationwide tour.  Lockett has assembled a smok’n quartet for this NIMA outing which features saxophonist Roger Manins, trumpeter Tom Avgenicos, bassist Thomas Botting and Lion-heart Lockett on drums.

So, “Lockett in” for any of these shows, they promise it will be a night to remember!
