Nikola Spasojevic Quintet
The Nikola Spasojevic Quintet creates musical conversations in which each member of the ensemble presents their individuality and conviction interpreted through the language of modern jazz. The choppy, improv-sparking drums along with the driving bass hooks provide the foundation for the group. The piano’s nudging chords give way to springing counter melodies. And on top, the horns coaxingly soulful melodies lead into vivacious solos that break off in contrasting musical directions. The band takes their music in unexpected directions, stretching out, resulting in movement of expression and self-identity. The quintet was formed at NYU with the goal of performing original compositions. It consists of Jack Harre- on drums, Arnie Sainz - on piano, Warren Louise - on bass, Eden Har-Gil
- drums and Nikola Spasojevic - saxophones.
