Born into brass bands, Richard Nunns sought refuge in jazz and improvised music. An interest in indigenous music came to focus on traditional Maori instruments, and a collection of over seventy of these instruments representing thirty-four distinct types.
He has collaborated with pop, classical, and jazz musicians, including pianist MARILYN CRISPELL, saxophonist EVAN PARKER, MIKE NOCK, and THE NZ STRING QUARTET.
In New Zealand he has performed with such diverse performers as the New Zealand String Quartet, Southern Sinfonia, Stroma, Deborah Wai Kapohe (soprano), Ben Hoadley (bassoon)...
