**OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING THE NATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL TAURANGA
The Tauranga Jazz Society has made the difficult decision to cancel the National Jazz Festival.
Tauranga Jazz Society’s top priority is the health and safety of artists, staff, volunteers, sponsors, venues, audience, and community. Following the recommendation of the New Zealand government and public health officials, the 58th National Jazz Festival has been cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns.
Festival organisers understand the impact this news may bring. With regard to the 43rd National Youth Jazz Competition to be held 8 to 9 April, Festival organisers are considering alternative dates and will release further information on this once they have consulted fully.
The James Morrison Quartet is one of the world’s most in-demand jazz ensembles.
Featuring Australian multi-instrumentalist James Morrison, the group has taken the international music scene by storm performing at major festivals such as BBC Proms with superstar Dianne Reeves, Melbourne International Jazz Festival with Patti Austin and performing at famous jazz venues including Ronnie Scott’s in London.
The James Morrison Quartet features his two sons, William on guitar and Harry on double bass, with drummer Patrick Danao.
Don’t miss this opportunity to experience pure swinging jazz from the best in the business.
