Smoke Notes

As part of the new vanguard of creative-jazz musicians, Tim Hopkins is as likely to be seen (and heard) jammin' with a DJ or at work in his home studio as he is presenting a night of contemporary otiginal music in classic jazz combo mode. His eclectic tastes and innate musicality have brought him to the attention of jazz gurus, pop icons, rappers, indy legends and funksters near and far.

A native New Zealander, Tim spent most of his professional career in Sydney, but after a 6 month stint in New York, he returned to his homeland in 1999 to concentrate on developing the ideas and concepts that have shaped his musical output over the last dozen or so years. 'Seven' is Tim's most mature and compelling release to date, and a major step forward in his conceptual development. The album is comprised of seven compositions that encapsulate Tim's musical philosophy and creative direction with great rigour and sense of purpose.

If, as some commentators claim, a renaissance is taking place in New Zealand jazz, Tim is surely one of its leading lights, and Seven one of its seminal achievements. The pieces were all written and conceived for a bass-less trio of saxophone, guitar and drums, and both Dixon Nacey (guitar) and John Rae (drums) shine in this setting, and the inclusion of Richard Nunns (taonga puoro) on "Road From Perdition" and "The Sleeping Giant" is inspired.
