We have a very special treat coming to Columbus on Monday, November 1st. Jazz Violinist & composer Zach Brock in support of his new album, The Magic Number, will be performing at the Vonn Jazz Lounge. Joining Zach will be Matt Wigton on bass and Fred Kennedy on drums. Cover is just $5 and show time is 7:30pm.
Heralded by Patricia Barber as “the one on whom to place your bets in jazz” and dubbed “the great bright hope for jazz violin” by the Chicago Tribune, Zach Brock’s performances have a reputation for combining instrumental virtuosity with an emotional connection that transports his audience beyond the concert hall. Brock’s own music has been described as both “classic American jazz with one eye on the fringes” and as “Jean-Luc Ponty meets Chuck Palahniuk in Fight Club.” Two years ago, when Jean-Luc Ponty was asked by Stanley Clarke to recommend the “new cat” that had “the stuff,” Ponty recommended Zach Brock.
Currently, Zach is performing with an all-acoustic trio that includes bassist Matt Wigton and drummer Fred Kennedy. Their new recording, “The Magic Number”, was funded entirely by fans’ donations made through a micro-funding website called Kickstarter. The trio makes their international debut at the 2010 Toronto Jazz Festival in July.
Zach Brock also performs and tours with a diverse roster of artists that includes Stanley Clarke, Bob Dorough, Frank Vignola, Snarky Puppy, The Mahavishnu Project, and the gypsy-punk band Mad Juana.
