Nick Finzers No Arrival CD Release 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. Hes 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.

Born into the musical world (Mom Sherry Finzer is an international flutist), Finzer developed a fascination for the music of Duke Ellington and found himself, in high school, performing at the annual Essentially Ellington competition of Jazz at Lincoln Center. It was then that he decided to pursue a life in music himself. His budding talent was recognized by Wycliffe Gordon who began a life-long mentorship by writing four pieces for the young Finzer while he attended the Eastman School of Music. Nick went on to get his masters at Juilliards prestigious Jazz program where he was mentored by the trombone legend Steve Turre.

In 2011 Nick was the winner of the Eastern Trombone Workshops National Jazz Trombone Competition and was a finalist in the 2010 International Trombone Associations Carl Fontana Jazz Trombone Competition.

In January of 2013 Nick released his recording debut as a bandleader and composer with Exposition (Outside In Music). Two tracks appearing on the album garnered Finzer a pair of accolades: The prestigious American Society of Composers and Performers (ASCAP)s Herb Alpert Award for young composers (2013 & 2015)

Famed trombonist and mentor Wycliffe Gordon called Finzer a new voice [in] the pantheon of upcoming trombone greats in the making and added Nick's CD is a glowing example of things to come.

When away from NYC, Finzer can be found touring the globe not only with his own projects, but as part of YouTube sensation, Scott Bradlees Postmodern Jukebox. Finzer has joined the group on television, in viral videos with millions of views, and on tours across North America, Australia, New Zealand and Europe.  

Finzer has performed at top Jazz clubs and concert halls with Wynton Marsalis Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Lucas Pinos No Net Nonet, Ryan Truesdell's Gil Evans Project, Bob Stewarts Double Quartet, Frank Wess, Terrell Stafford, Lewis Nash, the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, Walt Weiskopf, Slide Hampton, Frank Kimbrough, Carl Allen, Steve Turre and many more.
