NYC's Quinsin Nachoff Trio

Quinsin Nachoff Trio (featuring Mark Helias and Dan Weiss)

“[Nachoff’s writing is] bold, diverse and filled with compelling counterpoint” and “a fascinating mind…exquisite forlorn tenor [saxophone]”
–DownBeat Magazine

Nachoff has been leading a variety of diverse ensembles from brass quintets to string quartets to a violin concerto. For this outing he pars his concepts down to the saxophone trio with collaborators bassist Mark Helias and drummer Dan Weiss, debuting a set of new music in preparation for recording.

“Mark Helias is one of the finest acoustic bass players, a guy who can play inside as well as out and who stretches boundaries in both directions.” —Pop Matters

Dan Weiss was featured in the New York Times as “one of the 5 Most Promising Drummers of the New Generation” and was “The Top Up and Coming Percussionist” in the 60th and 61st annual Downbeat Critic’s Poll.
