New Zealand born Mike Nock’s career spans a broad range of contemporary music. Widely recognised as an important voice in Australian modern music, he i. ased in Sydney, and also spent 25 years in the USA, working with many of the world’s top jazz artists.

With one disc of largely free improvisations recorded in the summer of 2008 at the Sydney Opera House Studio, and a second culled from a weekend performance at the Sound Lounge in Sydney a couple months later, one set may focus predominantly on pulling music out of the ether while the other is about expanding on preconceived form. Nock's melancholic title track positions the three-way conversational nature of his trio from the get-go; its empathic interaction then traveling from spare but lyrical abstraction to more abstruse territory on the aptly titled "Joyous Awakening," where James' brushwork is as thematically focused as his trio mates' more over lyricism.

Michael Anthony "Mike" Nock ONZM (born 27 September 1940) is a New Zealand jazz pianist, currently based in Australia.

Mike Nock’s career has spanned a broad range of contemporary musical styles and he is widely recognised as an important voice in Australian modern music. Based in Sydney since 1986, he previously spent 25 years in the USA, working with many of the world’s top jazz artists. His compositions include orchestral music, woodwind, percussion ensembles, electronic, choral works et. and have been recorded and performed by a range of jazz & non-jazz performers.

An Accumulation of Subtleties marks 50 years of recording for Mike Nock and finds him returning to the trio format that launched his career with the Three Out in Sydney in 1960. It also coincides with the release of Norman Meehan’s excellent biography of the pianist/composer: Serious Fun: The Life and Music of Mike Nock (Wellington University Press). The piano trio has established itself firmly in the jazz tradition through artists such as Oscar Peterson, Bill Evans, Keith Jarrett and Brad Mehldau. Apotheosis’ is a powerful piece and one of the album highlights. It begins gently with rippling bass patterns from Ben Waples and moves into a quiet percussive section. Building in intensity the group move into time and climax in a triumphant finale with tremolo piano chords.

When is an ECM album not an ECM album? Two new releases from, respectively, Yelena Eckemoff and Mike Nock/Laurence Pike provide compelling answers. The question’s not so nonsensical as it seems. In the case of Everblue, witness an album composer-driven yet admissive of collaborators’ idiosyncrasies. Interviewed in 2012, our composer revealed that she’s trying to ease up, leaving more room in her pieces for performers to stretch out improvisationally and become co-creators ( JazzTimes ).
