AGNZ’s Chance Meeting reviewed by O’s Place and is at #46 on JazzWeek chart

On February 14th, O’s Place Jazz Newsletter reviewed AGNZ‘s Chance Meeting as follows:
“O’s Notes: A.G.N.Z. is a quartet featuring guitarist Jay Azzolina, Dino Govoni on sax, drummer Adam Nussbaum and bassist Dave Zinno. Dave and Adam had a successful tour in Europe that sparked interest in doing more together. They all convened in Providence, RI and their dream became reality. Each of the band members contributes at least one composition to this all-original set. That gives the session lots of variety as the Chance Meeting evolved into a strong session where the musicians gelled as a band. Among the best tunes are “N.T.I.”, “1 Of 3” and “Asha”.”
Chance Meeting is currently at #46 on the JazzWeek Chart
Azzolina Govoni Nussbaum Zinno/Chance Meeting/082 (re-peaks at 12, 23 weeks airplay) Four powerful jazz artists in mid-career, all with New England roots and impressive experience, come together in one explosion of brilliant light, to produce ten originals, full of purposeful playing and sublime solos. Chance meeting indeed! Perhaps though it’s not a coincidence that drummer Adam Nussbaum, bassist Dave Zinno, guitarist Jay Azzolina, and saxophonist Dino Govoni met at all. Together, the first-call quartet fuses beautifully on their debut play date together.

Surprise. Rare to carry over to new year, and also rare to go up after dropping down: defying gravity. ~Neal Weiss, Whaling City Sound

Four powerful jazz artists in mid-career, all with New England roots and impressive experience, come together in one explosion of brilliant light, to produce ten originals, full of purposeful playing and sublime solos.

Chance meeting indeed!

Perhaps though it’s not a coincidence that drummer Adam Nussbaum, bassist Dave Zinno, guitarist Jay Azzolina, and saxophonist Dino Govoni met at all.

Together, the first-call quartet fuses beautifully on their debut play date together.

Presiding over the session seems to be the musical spirit of Michael Brecker, Govoni and the band’s collective inspiration and the launching pad for much of the work on Chance Meeting.

With Brecker in mind, the four musicians—educators, bandleaders, conductors and original artists—form a single dynamic enterprise, playing with the confidence of visionaries that have the same elevated goal: to reach a new level not as individuals, but as a team, as an exhilarating ensemble with multiple talents but a single mind.
