Nick Mancini

vibraphonist • composer • arranger • educator

This is the sampler for "storyteller", the most recent release of original compositions by LA-based vibraphonist/composer Nick Mancini. It not only features moments of pure, burning jazz, but also a cinematic/chamber-like through-line which has long been an earmark of Mancini's work.
