A key player in galvanizing New York’s jazz cultural and spiritual awakening, Nowosad has been a major force in The Harlem Sessions, organized by renowned pianist Marc Cary. His New York-based ensemble has held court throughout the City—everywhere from Smalls to The Jazz Standard and full week residencies at Dizzy’s Club at Jazz at Lincoln Center (JALC).
Nowosad has played in the bands of Philip Harper, Craig Harris, rising star saxophonist Braxton Cook and Cary while headlining major jazz festivals in Canada and several in the U.S. On his self-titled album, the 31-year-old Canadian native emerges as a powerful musical force for social justice on a groundbreaking self-titled jazz and blues-driven collection that illuminates past and present history while creating some history of its own.
“We’re delighted to present the Curtis Nowosad Quartet to our community,” said Robert Kwan, Music Director at Trinity Episcopal Church. “They are master musicians and we’re in for a fun afternoon of top-notch entertainment. We welcome everyone who loves jazz.”
