nternationally-distributed releases including more than a dozen Grammy-nominated projects— Nick Phillips’ heartfelt, lyrical jazz trumpet playing was put in the national spotlight in 2014 with release of his own debut album, Moment to Moment. Co-led with jazz pianist Cava Menzies, the album—which cracked the top 20 on the Billboard Jazz chart and was named one of the “Best Jazz Albums of 2014” by DownBeat magazine.
Currently, Phillips is co-leading a project with pianist/vocalist/songwriter/arranger Jenny Maybee. The collaboration began with a chance meeting at the 2014 West Coast Songwriter’s conference. They discovered a shared love for music arising from a place of stillness, inspired and framed by silence, and conveying frequencies of appreciation, awe, and love. Focusing their shared musical exploration on the experience of the sound and creating a space for relaxed improvisation, the duo developed original compositions and reimagined favorite standards, for the pure joy of making music together.
Ariane has played in countless bands and projects in Europe and the US. Enjoying eclectic styles she particularly loved playing with bands such as the Mozartband (a fusion of funk, rock and Mozart featuring members of the Viennese Philharmonic), and the Celtic Rock Band Tempest, who she toured with for three years.
Ariane also performs a solo set featuring a genre bending (fromBach via Jazz to African World Music) selection of originals and covers performed on her effects and looping setup. She co-leads a project with Bassoonist Paul Hanson – OoN – The Bass-bassoon duo of Ariane Cap and Paul Hanson.
