First Trip! Nick Finzer's Hear & Now plays Herbie Hancock's Speak Like a Child!

50 years ago this year (2018), Herbie Hancock and his band recorded some of the most iconic jazz of the 1960's on his album "Speak Like a Child" - and as fate would have it, this music was among the first jazz I heard and performed as a high school student!

I post weekly videos here on YouTube that feature my original projects! Sometimes it’s a band video, a solo trombone piece, educational tips about jazz and playing trombone, they come out each Wednesday! If you don’t know me, I’m a jazz trombone player, educator, and producer based in New York City. I’ve had some great teachers like Wycliffe Gordon and Steve Turre, and studied at both the Eastman School of Music and the Juilliard School.  I’m always up to something new so make sure to stay connected if you want to see what’s happening in the jazz world here in NYC!
 

Say When! DynamicDuos 041 Featuring Yonatan Voltzok

Say When! DynamicDuos 041 Featuring Yonatan Voltzok

Yonatan is an amazing trombonist that lived in NY for many years before making a return to his home in Tel Aviv, Israel! We actually first met back in 2015 when I had the chance to play over there with Eyal Vilner and his big band - and he happened to be in NY and have a free day so we could record something! I’ve been making a habit of featuring this JJ Johnson composition every time I have the chance to perform as a guest soloist alongside a big band - most recently this spring at Glendale Community College. I always enjoy getting to play music with Yonatan, even if it’s so infrequently! I hope this is as fun for you, as it was for us to record it!

Have a great week - cya back here same time next week! 

What do I take on tour?

Dynamic Duos 038 - I Will Wait for You featuring Rubin Kodheli

Dynamic Duos 038 - I Will Wait for You featuring Rubin Kodheli

Today we're navigating slightly away from the usual, and featuring an amazing instrumentalist that plays an instrument not always associated with jazz - Cello. 

 

I first met Rubin when we started playing in a new band with the amazing clarinetist and composer Anat Cohen last year. We had the chance to play at the 2016 Newport Jazz Festival, and record an album that will be coming out sometime in late 2017! 

 

Here we're playing one of my favorite ballads - and it also happens to be by the great film composer Michel Legrand. "I Will Wait for You"

 

Hope you enjoy! Be sure to check out what Rubin is up to, he's doing a lot of creating and exciting stuff!
