Mike Nock Trio
ABOUT MIKE NOCK
Pianist/composer/bandleader Mike Nock has made a huge impact on the Australian jazz scene as pianist, composer and bandleader, particularly since his 1986 return from the USA, where he spent 25 years pursuing his chosen career in the company of many of the world’s leading jazz musicians.
While in the US he firmly established his international reputation as a creative musician, from his many highly regarded recordings as both leader and sideman, along with work with his innovative jazz-rock quartet, The Fourth Way.
Attracting many prizes and honours throughout his lengthy career and with a large catalogue of recordings and compositions, he continues to delight and inspire audiences wherever he performs.
"Pianist Mike Nock is a knock-out….one of jazzdoms most expansive minds, Nock’s palpable appeal flows from a lyric gift given shape by a sublime musical intelligence.” Jazz Times USA
“Nock’s ringing iconoclasm pervades all his music, taps a deep well of melody that transcends jazz and informs and ignites his every encounter.” – Fred Bouchard, Downbeat (USA)
