nick mazzarellaAlto saxophonist Nick Mazzarella’s distinctive explorations of Ornette Coleman and John Coltrane-like textural jazz improv is best heard in his trio with bassist Anton Hatwich and drummer Frank Rosaly. The group has two albums under its belt, with another one on the way – Aviary in 2010, This is Only a Test: Live at the Hungry Brain in 2011, and Ultraviolet, which is planned for a summer 2015 release – and they also took center stage at the 2013 Chicago Jazz Festival. Mazzarella is a member of the Chicago Reed Quartet with Ken Vandermark, Mars Williams, and Dave Rempis, and he has sat in with Rob Mazurek’s Exploding Star Orchestra. Nick will perform at the festival in a trio with Avreeayl Ra and Ingebrigt Håker Flaten; the group played its first concert in September 2014 and will have its debut tape release on Astral Spirits during Sonic Transmissions.
