  • Nick Finzer

    Nick Finzer

    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. 

    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 Juilliard’s prestigious Jazz program where he was mentored by the trombone legend Steve Turre

    In 2011 Nick was the winner of the Eastern Trombone Workshop’s National Jazz Trombone Competition and was a finalist in the 2010 International Trombone Association’s 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) 

    In 2014, Nick composed a new album-length work, “The Chase.” Nick's sophomore album debuted in July of 2015 on Origin Records to rave reviews, a feature article in Downbeat Magazine, and peaked at #6 on the JazzWeek Charts. 

    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 Bradlee’s 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 MarsalisJazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Lucas Pino’s No Net Nonet, Ryan Truesdell's Gil Evans ProjectBob Stewart’s Double Quartet, Frank WessTerrell Stafford, Lewis Nash, the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, Walt WeiskopfSlide Hampton, Frank Kimbrough, Carl Allen, Steve Turre and many more

  • Air For Ants

    Air For Ants

    Once a solo experimental electronic project in 2010, Air For Ants is now regarded by 11 time Grammy winner Kenneth ‘Babyface’ Edmonds as a band with “cool songs”. Upon hearing the 2015 album We Think It Was Raised by Wolves, Coldplay Producer Ken Nelson stated that front man Dominic Sahagun “has a fantastic voice.” A documentary, Do I Hear a Dollar?, will be released next year about the making of the 2017 album Once Again with Feeling. Air For Ants is currently on a US tour with possible European dates later this year.
