Nick Sanders Trio

Music impacts life.  Life impacts music.  For jazz pianist Nick Sanders, his life experiences and his musical influences have converged in a perfect storm, creating a truly fresh musical voice – wholly original yet clearly shaped by the masters he has studied and embraced.  His unique sound is profound, soulful and rich, resonating with the moody isolation that characterizes so much of modern life, yet also with our deep yearning for human connection … both sentiments clearly expressed on his debut recording for Sunnyside Records, Nameless Neighbors, produced by Fred Hersch.

Ingrid will be performing with her sister, saxophonist Christine Jensen who will make the trip from Montreal to join bassist Matt Clohesy, drummer Jon Wikan and either Ben Monder (guitar) or Gary Versace (piano).
