Bob Nieske

Bob Nieske has quietly become one of the finest jazz composers and bassists in New England. Through work with Jimmy Giuffre (including two Soul Note albums), the Either/Orchestra (which has recorded a number of Nieske compositions), George Russell, and virtually every jazz musician of consequence in Boston, Nieske has achieved a truly personal sound. His current group, the Bob Nieske 3, is a trio that is steeped in the tradition of jazz without being traditional. They swing hard but never play cliches; they play freely but never without intention and direction. In the trio, Bob is joined by elder statesman drummer Nat Mugavero, a legend for his profound, quirky musicality, and thirty-something trumpeter Phil Grenadier, a fiery and lyrical voice with the imagination to stand as the one-man front line of the Nieske 3.
