Please join us on Saturday, May 12 at 8PM for the return of New York city-based trombonist Nick Finzer! Nick returns to Nashville as part of his 2018 No Arrival tour.
Nick Finzer is one of the most dynamic musicians of the millennial generation. An award-winning composer, arranger, and trombonist, Finzer is bringing the joy and power of Jazz to both traditional fans and the most modern 21st century audiences. He’s on a mission to be a passionate voice defining the sound of Jazz in this age while also bringing street cred to the trombone with a bold, tight sound.
“a new voice [in] the pantheon of upcoming trombone greats in the making... Nick's CD is a glowing example of things to come.” - Wycliffe Gordon
Finzer has studied under legends Wycliffe Gordon, Steve Turre, and others. He has earned several prestigious national awards, and his debut CD The Chase went to number 6 on the JazzWeek charts and earned Finzer a feature article in Downbeat.
