Nia Quintet, Jazz

Nia Quintet

Nia Quintet, Jazz
Tuesday, June 12, 2018
6 – 8 p.m.

The Nia Quintet is a collaboration of five individuals searching for similar things in music, in hopes of obtaining a sense of unity and understanding. Having like-minded individuals reaching progressively toward the same goal—but from different angles—brings a refreshing new quality to the ensemble. Led by trumpeter/composer Scott Anderson, the Nia Quintet blends together musicians of the highest caliber to present a showcase of melodic interaction and improvisation. The first of their two albums, End of Time, released on Blujazz Records, received rave reviews from national publications such as JazzTimes, Improv and Cadence magazine. The second album Earth Sign also received rave reviews and was the catalyst for their newest endeavor, moving the groups’ direction into different territories and adding the newest members of the group, Paul Mutzabaugh and Jon Deitemyer. Look for their newest recording on Scholz Productions, which will be released in 2018, featuring a new twist on a group of musicians looking to expand their musical horizons.
