Pianist/composer Nick Sanders records for the esteemed international record label Sunnyside Records and lives in Brooklyn, New York. Raised in New Orleans, Nick is a graduate of the New England Conservatory and multiple-year winner of the Marion and Eubie Blake International Piano Award. In October of 2016, Nick – in collaboration with sax phenom Logan Strosahl – will release “Janus,” his third CD for Sunnyside. It follows his first two acclaimed releases “Nameless Neighbors” and “You Are A Creature,” both produced by Fred Hersch.
“Sanders proved to be a two-handed whiz at the keyboard, able to sustain complex contrapuntal lines and spin dramatic variations while maintaining the musical momentum. His sound was warm and embracing, but plenty of lightning flashed through his cloudscapes, as he nudged his bandmates with crisp trills, ringing octaves and edgy harmonic choices.”
