A tribute to the outstanding NZ cornet player, band director and educator who died in 2015.

A champion cornet player from an early age, Kevin Jarrett later graduated to conducting.

After international success with Wanganui City Brass in 1988, he was appointed to the National Band of NZ, which he directed in 1989, 1990, 1992 and 1995.

David Bremner plays excerpts from his interview with Kevin Jarrett and also talks to others who knew and worked with him, Bill Platt and Robin Ensoll.
