Zack Hann Trio
Zachary Hann is a saxophonist, clarinetist, and composer based in Brooklyn, New York. He comes from a lineage of New York migrs from southern and eastern Europe who settled in Brooklyn and Queens in the 19th century. Hann studied classical clarinet at the Juilliard school, where he became exposed to New York Citys rich jazz scene. He eventually turned his attention toward jazz, taking up the alto saxophone and studying improvisation with acclaimed pedagogue Sam Yahel. Hann formed the Zack Hann Trio in a house in the woods of Vermont, where musicians from New York had gathered to wait out the darkest days of the COVID pandemic. There, he met bassist Solomon Gottfried and drummer Jacob Patrone, recent graduates from The New School. The three started playing trio, finding solace in expansive sessions where they moved fluidly between songs for hours on end, improvising transitions to avoid pause. The intensity of those sessions resulted in a deeply expressive, folkloric sound, and a commitment to their continued collaboration as a group.After moving back to New York, the trio continued its rigorous exploration of the jazz trio format. Recognized for their rich, vibrant sound and commitment to spontaneity, their approach is rooted in the tradition of legendary saxophone-bass-drums trios like those led by Sonny Rollins, Lee Konitz, and Joe Lovano. The trios extensive repertoire encompasses jazz standards, American folk song, pop and indie music, Western classical music, free improvisation, electronic music, and original compositions. They have performed extensively throughout the New York area, including residencies at Scouts Coffee Bar and Mercantile and Sunrise/Sunset Cafe.
