Zach Brock’s first release on the European label Criss Cross Jazz features top-rank musicians Aaron Goldberg on piano, Matt Penman on bass and Eric Harland on drums. Almost Never Was has the distinction of being the first record date by a violinist for the venerable label. It features Zach’s signature approach to a new jazz language for the violin, three original compositions and musical inspirations as varied as Jimi Hendrix, Leslie Feist and Joe Henderson.

This year has brought great things for the Brooklyn resident. After performing at the Sundance Film Festival in January, he returned to New York City to record for Criss Cross. In the spring, Zach toured with pianist Phil Markowitz in Italy and in the U.S. In late June, Zach and his trio The Magic Number traveled to The Solomon Islands as artist envoys for the U.S. Department of State followed by a tour in Germany with vocalist and pianist Stephanie Nilles. Returning state side, Zach recorded with Wycliffe Gordon for Gordon’s Criss Cross release, a collection of blues and ballads by Ellington and Strayhorn. Recent performances in Chicago prompted Neil Tesser of the Chicago Examiner to state that Zach is “…the pre-eminent improvising violinist of his generation.”

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
