Nate Philips, Piano Jazz

June 5, 2019 @ 7:30 pm

Preservation New Jersey and the New Jersey Jazz Society welcome Nate Philips back to the 1867 Sanctuary for an evening of piano jazz.

Nate PhilipsAfter some concerts exploring R&B tunes, Folk & Singer-Songwriter material, and other Contemporary artists, Nate will be returning this month to his jazz-piano roots for a night of Vocal Jazz Standards. These Vocal Jazz Standards all hail from the big-band/swing era (1933-1947). He will be singing and playing piano on classic tunes composed by Jerome Kern, Cole Porter, and Duke Ellington, among others.

Nate Philips is a 25 year-old musician from Morrisville, PA who is on a quest for authenticity in sound and in artistic vision. He has been playing piano since age 7 and guitar since age 12. In 2017 he got his Bachelor of the Arts degree from Sarah Lawrence College, where he studied jazz piano and music performance with some great teachers including drummer Matt Wilson, pianist Mike Longo, and the incredible guitarist Glenn Alexander. Currently, he works as an ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher part-time for the YWCA in Trenton.

His original songs–on both guitar and piano–are unique and captivating. They possess an intimacy that the listener can connect with immediately. His approach to jazz piano is also unique, in part because of his vast range of influences. In his spare time he listens to music ranging from Electronic, to Hip-Hop, Rock, Folk, Indie, Jazz, or Video Game, Film, and Television Soundtracks. He also loves to write in his journal, hang out at coffee shops, and in general have a really relaxed, enjoyable time in this crazy journey called life.

Jazz at the 1867 Sanctuary and throughout the Trenton/Princeton area is featured on trenton.jazznearyou.com. Download their app for iOS, Android, and Kindle Fire!
