NYC Jazz Violinist Zach Brock and Tryptich
Heralded as the “pre-eminent improvising violinist of his generation,” Zach Brock plays and composes music that draws on elements of jazz, pop, and classical music.
The Chicago Tribune recognized his recording “Perpetuity” as one of its top 10 jazz recordings of 2014. Downbeat Magazine’s 61st annual Critic’s Poll named Zach its rising star violinist of 2013.  He has played from Carnegie Hall to most of the NYC and Chicago jazz clubs, to clubs around the world, including major stints in Brazil, and as US Department of State Ambassador to the Solomon Islands.
Zach comes to Boulder on tour with his trio, “Triptych.” This is your opportunity to experience the very best! And right here in Boulder at the Dairy Arts Center.
