Piano Jazz Series: Rachel Z
Acclaimed jazz pianist Rachel Z brings her trio to Zinc for a splendid evening of jazz piano on Saturday, December 28. She's supported by bassist Ben Street and drummer Billy Hart. The stunning Rachel Z and her piano trio have audiences captivated from the moment they hit their seats. With recording and performing credits including Peter Gabriel, Al DiMeola, Wayne Shorter, Steps Ahead, and Stanley Clarke, Rachel's magnificent and exquisite song poems are beautiful and demanding. Manhattan-born and raised Rachel Nicolazzo (aka Rachel Z) had music practically ingrained in her genetic code. Groomed to follow in her mother's operatic footsteps, she began voice lessons at two, started classical piano lessons at seven and attended the opera by age nine. "Then I heard Miles Smiles." Listening to Herbie Hancock's harmonies over Wayne Shorter's compositions helped her bridge the gap from her classical training to jazz. Rachel Z graduated from the New England Conservatory with a "Distinction in Performance" award.
