Antipodes is a collective of New Zealand, Australian, and European jazz musicians co-led by pianist Luke Sweeting and saxophonist Jake Baxendale. The group plays original compositions with an emphasis on melody, emotive soundscapes, and an open improvisational aesthetic. Their music is drawn from diverse influences — modern New York jazz meets Swedish indie pop and European free improv.
“I was taken aback by how sophisticated was this [is] … how perfect were the harmonies of the front liners … the sound merging so neatly and satisfyingly … [with an] air of clarity and refinement. Classy playing with deep intent.” — Eric Pozza, Canberra Jazz
