Damon Zick and Friends
Damon Zick and Friends play their own unique brand of original jazz emphasizing melody, groove and communication. Damon's compositions provide an eclectic wealth of departure points for some top-notch improvisation. The band formed more than ten years ago while members were attending the prestigious Eastman School of Music in Rochester, NY. While there they had the opportunity to study and perform with such artists as Bob Brookmeyer, Bill Holman, Benny Carter, Eliane Elias, Steve Vai, Benny Golson, Mike Cain, Ralph Alessi and many others. Since then they have gone on to perform concerts and master classes across the United States. Members have performed and/or recorded with Steve Coleman, Ravi Coltrane, Joe LaBarbera, Vinny Golia, Bob Mintzer, Kneebody, the New World Symphony, the Woody Herman Orchestra and many others. Their follow up CD to The Outing is due out in 2005. For more information and song samples visit www.zick.net.
