Nick Mazzarella Trio

Line up: Nick Mazzarella (alto saxophone) – Anton Hatwich (bass) – Frank Rosaly (drums)

Saxophonist and composer Nick Mazzarella has been described as a person who “continues the approach taken by like minded-soloist such as Eric Dolphy, Ornette Coleman, Henry Threadgill, Oliver Lake, and Gary Bartz” He has been of consistent presence in Chicago’s music scene since the early 2000’s where his performance schedule has made an aesthetically unique contribution to the city’s rich culture of jazz and improvised music. He was one of the first artists to release music on the renowned label International Anthem (Makaya McCraven, Irreversible Entanglements, Jamie Branch) but has kept to the underground jazz scene pushing his heavy avant-gardesque approach to bop.

This is Mazzarella’s first concert in The Netherlands, and he will be accompanied by his core trio, featuring drummer Frank Rosaly and bassist Anton Hatwich.

”As a saxophonist, Mazzarella channels Ornette Coleman through the intensity of Jackie McLean‘s piercing sound. His tone sets its compass outward, but remains firmly rooted within the post-hard bop-blues praxis.”
