Quinsin Nachoff

Canadian saxophonist, composer and clarinetist Quinsin “Nachoff…is one of the truly bright younger jazz minds hereabouts” (Globe&Mail). His latest CD of original music, Magic Numbers, released in 2006 on the Songlines label, integrates a string quartet with a jazz trio. Heralded as “one of the most innovative chamber jazz recordings in recent years” (, it features New York drummer Jim Black and bassist Mark Helias. His upcoming release of original compositions will feature the talents of British pianist John Taylor and Dutch cellist Ernst Reijseger. He also leads a variety of eclectic ensembles. A newly released co-led project with French drummer Bruno Tocanne, 5 New Dreams (Cristal Records), has also garnered critical praise: Nachoff is “…one of the revelations of the year” (JAZZMAN MAGAZINE – FRANCE) and “Virtuosic and brilliant as an instrumentalist” (JAZZMAGAZINE – FRANCE)
