Sam and Loris Duo with vocalist Allana Goldsmith

  • Point Chevalier RSA 1136 Great North Road Auckland, Auckland, 1022 New Zealand (map)

Sam and Loris make a timely return to the Auckland Jazz & Blues Club with their signature jazz duo and will be joined by vocalist Allana Goldsmith.

Sam & Loris Duo are a guitar and piano duo who specialise in jazz, blues and latin music as well as a range of other styles and genres. They formed their duo during their time studying at the New Zealand School of Music (where they also met Allana) and have since been developing the concept and exploring the endless possibilities of playing in this instrumental format. Their collective interest and passion has led them on to establish a professional jazz duo and "band for hire" that has seen them perform at numerous private/corporate functions and public events.

This year Sam & Loris were part of the National Jazz Festival Tauranga where they performed at the popular downtown carnival and also at a screening of The Glenn Miller Story at Rialto Tauranga. They also performed a well-received concert at Bayswater, a major Metlifecare retirement village and they are looking forward to presenting some of that material from their Tauranga tour on the night.

The show will include a set by Sam & Loris Duo followed by two sets as a trio with Allana Goldsmith. They will perform a variety of material that will span through many different styles and genres and will include a beautiful selection of American Songbook and jazz/ latin standards as well as some jazzed up covers and possibly even an original.

Sam, Loris and Allana warmly welcome you to join them on this special evening at the AJBC and they hope you have an enriching evening.
