Mar 21, 2017 Updated Apr 7, 2017

Music from the up-and-coming US trombone player Nick Finzer, alongside his long-running sextet.

Nick Finzer has just released his third album with his sextet, featuring Lucas Pino on reeds, Alex Wintz on guitar, Glenn Zaleski on piano, bassist Dave Baron and drummer Jimmy Macbride. The record is called Hear & Now, and showcases Finzer's original compositions as well as an Ellington number.
