The new generation of young jazz musicians has had the opportunity to not only absorb so much of this music’s language through easy access to a plethora of formats, but who have also been taught directly from master musicians in institutions of higher learning. Pianist Nick Sanders is fortunate to have spent a large part of his study with masters of the idiom, including Fred Hersch and the facility at New Orleans’s heralded NOCCA. It is how he has channeled these influences that has made the pianist and his music stand apart. His remarkable musicianship is shown in full on his second release, You Are A Creature, with his dynamic Trio featuring bassist Henry Fraser and drummer Connor Baker.
