About the Record:
Hear & Now offers a bold call to action with Finzer’s sextet featuring Lucas Pino, Alex Wintz, Glenn Zaleski, Dave Baron and Jimmy Macbride
" [Finzer’s] compositions are like stained-glass windows: lovely on the surface, but more impressive for how they imbue what’s behind them with color." — Brian Zimmerman, Downbeat
"Nick Finzer [is] a new voice to the pantheon of upcoming trombone greats in the making." – Wycliffe Gordon
Trombonist/composer Nick Finzer captures the uneasy mood of a turbulent time on his third album, Hear & Now. Though the title – which the album shares with the gifted and expressive sextet that Finzer has led since his debut release in 2013 – suggests an alertness to the present time and place, Finzer’s music also evokes a need and hope for change, a defiant optimism that pits love against the forces of oppression.
Nick is on Tour NOW Supporting the New Album!
