Alto saxophonist and composer Nick Mazzarella has been a consistent presence in Chicago’s music scene since the early 2000s, and his regular performances represent an aesthetically unique contribution to the city’s jazz and improvised music culture. His two working trios and quintet are the primary vehicles for his endeavors as a composer and leader, while as a collaborator or sideman he has performed and recorded with such artists as Rob Mazurek, Frank Rosaly, Tomeka Reid, Avreeayl Ra, Ingebrigt Håker Flaten, and Dana Hall. Mozzarella is also the curator of the Anagram concert series, presented weekly at Elastic Arts in Chicago. The latest work of the Chicago innovators elevate intuitive improvisation with artfully constructed themes in a thoughtful elaboration of formal free jazz.
