HEAR & NOW
Hear & Now is the past and the present. The point of view of today with foundation in the roots of jazz and American music. Finzer’s music evokes a need and hope for change, a defiant optimism that pits love against the forces of oppression. The band is a sextet of highly inventive artists who come together to give voice to the themes and ideas of Finzer’s music. Lucas Pino on tenor saxophone and bass clarinet, Alex Wintz on guitar, Glenn Zaleski on piano, Dave Baron on bass, and Jimmy Macbride on drums bring the power and wide ranging palette of a big band with the supple energy of a small ensemble. Influenced by the numerous bands of Duke Ellington, Chick Corea, John Coltrane, and Michael Brecker, Hear & Now is poised to share this generation's perspectives on jazz with the world today.
