Composer, arranger and trombonist, Nick Finzer - born into a jazz family and with a master from the Julliard School - made his début as band leader in 2013, with the album “Exposition” (Outside in Music). The second album, The Chase” (Origin Records), came out in 2015, to enthusiastic reviews.
Then in 2017 they released “Hear&Now” (Outside in Music), the début album of Nick Finzer’s Hear&Now project, with excellent reviews on All About Jazz USA, which combines the jazz tradition to the repertoire of contemporary jazz musicians such as Michael Brecker and Chick Corea, besides including original compositions, heavily influenced by the same Chick Corea, Duke Ellington, John Coltrane and Michael Brecker.
After their performance on state at Umbria Jazz in July 2017, young Nick - who has already undertaken a number of international tours in North America, Australia, New Zealand and Europe - published the album “Nick Finzer and Chris Ziemba live in New York! Recorded live at Bunker Studios in Brooklyn ” (Outside in Music), and available on i-Tunes and Spotify. Even the Hear&Now formation has been continuing its intense live and studio activities, in preparation for the release of the album “No Arrival” (Posi-Tone Records), expected in April and the major tour of the United States which will see the band play in New York, Denver, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Washington DC, Atlanta, Nashville, Orlando, Cleveland, Detroit and Chicago, to mention but a few.
