Since leaving behind the lush, verdant countryside and rolling hills of Drury, north of the mighty Waikato for the hot, suburban sprawl of Sydney in 2011, guitarist Peter Koopman has become a regular fixture on Australia’s music scene. This jaunt to NZ will see him reunited with long-time and long-suffering housemate, bassist Thomas Botting. Both Tom and Pete were award-winners on their respective instruments at the prestigious National Jazz Awards at the Wangaratta Jazz Festival, which included a cash prize but this, alas, has been spent. Recent releases include “Honest Oblivion”, the second album from djazz pioneers Scoredatura and the self-titled debut from COAST.
