The Nick Hempton Quartet at Small’s TONIGHT!

February 19, 2011

In 2005, Australian-born alto saxophonist Nick Hempton assembled a group of players to launch an assault on the Big Apple’s vibrant jazz scene. His quartet with musicians from around the globe including Israeli drummer Dan Aran , Sicilian-born bassist Marco Panascia, and pianist Art Hirahara (the only naturally-born American in the group, originally from the San Francisco Bay Area)—has been performing at jazz venues in the New York area ever since. The quartet’s self-titled debut contains intelligent renditions of three familiar standards and five originals from Hempton, delivered in a modern/mainstream style that’s quite inviting.

Nick Hempton and his band will be appearing at Small’s Jazz Club in the West Village tonight for two powerful sets. You don’t want to miss this.
