Returning from the USA in 1985, after 25 years of touring and recording with the greats, Mike Nock remains an inspiration to everyone who crosses his path musically. In the States he accompanied for many top vocalists including Dionne Warwick, Helen Merrill, Sheila Jordan and Morgana King. The skills he honed while working with such artists are very evident in his gigs with consummate vocalist Kristin Berardi, described in the SMH as "...probably the finest jazz singer Australia has produced."
"he has done everything and triumphantly stayed at the vanguard of jazz's evolution." Eric Myers, The Australian
"Nock is quite simply, one of the unsung piano heroes of the past fifty years." All About Jazz
Mike and Kristin will be drawing from their extensive standard jazz repertoire which they've been developing over the past 10 years. The list includes Body and Soul, No More Blues, Just Squeeze Me, After You've Gone, Just In Time, Moon and Sand, Don't Blame Me, I Remember You - and many more.
His trio with bassist Brett Hirst and drummer James Waples, is regarded as one of the top modern jazz groups in Australia. Both musicians have played with Mike for many years and are featured on several of his award-winning albums. Very much in demand with other top groups they bring a wealth of contemporary experience to his music.
"One of the world's key jazz pianists for the past 45 years." John Shand, SMH
