Mboya Nicholson

Mboya Nicholson has performed from Japan to Brazil. His touch at the piano has been applauded by the Consul General of the Netherlands in Canada and the Ambassador to the Vatican in Italy. During the seven years he spent living in New Orleans, Nicholson studied with pioneers of the Crescent City's post World War II jazz scene. While in New Orleans Nicholson received his Masters Degree in music, from the University of New Orleans (UNO). Campus performances afforded him the chance to play with various lumiaries including Jason Marsalis, Sonny Fortune, Wes Anderson and Victor Goines. Currently residing in Toronto, Nicholson teaches piano and has released a self-titled CD. Presently he is re-working an original suite composed in 1994, for recording and his next album is a look at different types of blues.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
