Chris Mason-Battley Group

One of New Zealand's leading contemporary jazz groups with a well-established reputation for pushing the genre's borders.

CMB Group has released four albums to date, including Two Tides, a powerful collaboration with Richard Nunns which explores the territory between jazz and taonga puoro.

Their latest project features re-interpretations of composer John Psathas' music, one of the most original voices in the arena of contemporary classical music in New Zealand.

Their music sweeps between poignant beauty and high intensity, classical and jazz, drum and bass.
