HEAR&NOW

Nick Finzer’s main ensemble is a trombone driven group that combines the rich traditions of jazz, with the repertoire of the American Songbook and the music of contemporary jazz artists such as Michael Brecker and Chick Corea, not to mention a healthy handful of original compositions. The ensemble takes strong influence from the musical styles and band sounds of a number of non- trombone led groups, including groups led by Chick Corea, Dave Holland, Chris Potter, Miguel Zenon and Dafnis Prieto fusing contrapuntal writing with musical melodies and strong improvisational contributions from each member of the band. This group is focused on creating improvised music that builds on the tradition of jazz, and presents a modern twist on a trombone fronted group.
