THE MBOYA NICHOLSON QUARTET

 

The Mboya Nicholson Quartet performs a collection of well loved standards, as well as original compositions.

Line up

Mboya Nicholson – Piano
Jamie Philp – Guitar
Aretha Tillotson – Bass
Jamie Cooper – Drums

The Mboya Nicholson Quartet performs an evening of ballads, blues and swing, featuring compositions that have transcended eras, embedded in popular culture as standards; as well original compositions, influenced in part, by those classic songs. The group embraces the guitar piano combination which is not often utilized in modern jazz groups. Influenced by the impact of artists like Nat Cole and Oscar Peterson in regard to their use of guitar/piano combinations, the Mboya Nicholson Quartet utilizes the tradition of that sound, and explores what can be done with it, through the repertoire of Ellington, Mary Lou Williams, and many more.
