The aim of this project is to produce an album of new works written by New Zealand composers recorded and produced by the Rodger Fox Big Band.

The Rodger Fox Big Band has always been keen to promote New Zealand based composers and to provide them with an outlet for their work. At this stage in the bands life it has commissioned / recorded / performed more than 70 New Zealand compositions. We believe this project is an opportunity to celebrate the excellent work done by our local composers and that this album has the potential to become a valuable resource for educators. Scores of all the works will be available both nationally and internationally through the band website for other bands to study and perform which
will give visibility to our composers.

Special thanks for Creative New Zealand for their support of this project.

This recording would not exist without the continuing support of all the members of the Rodger Fox Big Band.
I am grateful for that support.

Many many thanks

Best
RODGER
