Nick Sorensen (tenor, alto and soprano saxophones), “a fine lyrical saxophonist” (Jazzwise magazine), is equally at home playing jazz standards, free improvisation, contemporary compositions, blues and folk music. His influences include Lee Konitz (with whom he had a lesson in New York), Sonny Rollins, Stan Getz, Wayne Shorter, Jan Garbarek, and Bobby Wellins. He has played alongside some of the best contemporary jazz musicians including Pee Wee Ellis, Dave Newton, Tony Roberts, Iain Ballamy, and Karen Street. His partnership with virtuoso pianist John Law dates back to 2006 and they have developed a unique and enthralling rapport. Their debut CD “The Journey Home” was released in 2010, receiving critical acclaim in Jazzwise Magazine: “an entertaining collection designed to reach out and grab your ears”.

The Nick Sorensen Trio play the repertoire of contemporary jazz composers such as Wayne Shorter, Chick Corea and Keith Jarrett (though never forgetting the timeless Duke Ellington). Their performances include unique interpretations of some of their favourite tunes alongside original compositions. Enjoy the lyrical and creative interplay between three outstanding jazz musicians: Nick Sorensen (tenor saxophone), John Law (piano) and Nick Pini (bass)
