Nick Mancini Collective Monthly Residency @ TR!P in Santa Monica

Mancini is back at the West Side's favorite neighborhood music venue and watering hole, TR!P on Lincoln Blvd in Santa Monica, just south of the 10. It's a monthly residency (every last Tuesday) Come in, order a drink. There's no cover, so when Mancini barks at you from the stage to pony up (ie. hit the tip jar), you best do it, cause he's been known to not play until you do. And you need to stick around to Diablo Banco, lead by drummer/singer/madman Andy Sanesi - the smartest, most ignorant live party band EVER!!!

Nick Mancini Quartet @ Sam First (near LAX)

I'm very excited to see what this band can do. In their own right each of these guys are monster players and in addition, they each are some of the most sensitive and sensible musicians with whom I've had the distinct pleasure of performing. Sam First is a top rate venue for jazz. Owned by a true appreciator of the art form, every detail is hand picked and specifically curated for the pleasure of enjoying live jazz in an intimate setting. I'm honored to be on the roster.

Nelson/Mancini 2 and 4 @ Blue Whale in Little Tokyo

Sublime artistry, boundless creativity, and consummate technique are the hallmarks of this of locally celebrated, world-class duo. Although they hail from starkly contrasting home fronts, pianist Josh Nelson (a cool Southern California native) and vibist Nick Mancini (a hothead from chilly upstate New York) possess a profoundly unique musical kinship. Both player-composers appreciate the value of a well-conceived composition and the turn of a clever melodic phrase, but it’s their organic synchrony and dulcet tone that distinguish this compelling musical coupling. Join Josh and Nick as they present an evening of mostly original music with a few choice standards in both duo and quartet settings, with Jordan Richards on bass and Shawn Baltazor on drums.
