NZ music legend Jim Langabeer’s compositions, Secret Islands, are a series of original jazz pieces that effortlessly assimilate the North American jazz form into an Aotearoa New Zealand context. It is a deeply unique and soulful sound, one that is authentically their own; deep swinging grooves, curious questioning melodies, sizzling free-jazz movements and the haunting sounds of multiphonics and Taonga Puoro.


– Jim Langabeer (flutes, Taonga Puoro, tenor saxophone, compositions).
– Rosie Langabeer (piano, keys).
– Roger Manins (alto saxophone).
– Neil Watson (Fender guitar, steel guitar).
