On April 19, prepare to experience the magic of Nick Finzer's latest project "Dreams, Visions, Illusions" - a thematically and psychologically penetrating work — one that explores the role of the muse in creative inspiration. As per Dreams, Visions and Illusions’ title, Finzer trisected this concept and shone it through the lens of creative and professional labor. “At one point, it’s just a Dream — a thing you think maybe you can do,” he says. “And that’s the Visions part: ‘You’re playing with people; you’re getting closer.” As for Illusions: “There’s a circular nature to the journey.” To Finzer, there’s a spiritual escape route from this 24/7 hustle — one that just about every NYC jazz musician is intimately familiar with. “I’m trying to aspire to that — some days succeeding, and some days failing,” Finzer says with a laugh, coming to terms with his overall career arc. “It took me a long time to get to the realization of what this particular life can be.” NICK FINZER is one of the most dynamic musicians of the millennial generation. An award-winning trombonist, composer, producer, entrepreneur, and educator, Finzer is bringing the joy and power of Jazz to traditional fans and the most modern 21st-century audiences. He’s on a mission to be a passionate voice defining the sound of Jazz in this age. Never satisfied with just one singular path Finzer can be found on stages all over the world with the likes of the Grammy-nominated Anat Cohen Tentet, leading his own band Hear & Now through their most recent critically acclaimed album: Cast of Characters (Outside in Music, 2020), topping Downbeat Magazine’s 2020 “Rising Star Trombone” Category of their Critics Poll,  producing albums and videos for his record label Outside in Music, educating the next generation of musicians as the inaugural Assistant Professor of Jazz Trombone at the renowned University of North Texas, and maintaining a robust presence on his YouTube Channel & Social Media sharing resources on trombone, jazz education, and music marketing.
