Jacám Manricks is an Australian-born, New York City-based jazz Renaissance man, a saxophonist and composer whose new album Labyrinth, features a jazz quintet and 40-piece chamber orchestra, with some of the leading Jazz soloists in New York along with himself on saxophones and woodwinds.
Since coming to NYC from his native Australia early this decade, Manricks has made his mark both as a PhD-level jazz composer at the Manhattan School of Music and as an alto saxophonist and multi- instrumentalist on the most vibrant jazz scene in the world.
In addition to his quintet and chamber orchestra, Manricks fronts a quartet, a trio and performs with, among other NYC notables, The Tyshawn Sorey Quintet, the Felipe Salles Band, Elio Villafranca, and Werner Klausenitzer’s Som Sum Sam. He’s also shared the concert stage with the likes of Ray Charles, Dave Liebman, Jeff “Tain” Watts and Mike Nock, his piano playing mentor back in Sydney.
The release of Labyrinth, his 2nd CD as a leader, heightens his profile and alerts post-bop jazz aficionados throughout the country to what has been obvious to discriminating listeners in Europe, Australia and NYC – Jacám Manricks is a world-class talent.
Catch him tonight with fellow NYC-based musician Danny Fischer on drums and renowned pianist Mike Nock, with Brendan Clarke on bass.
