Zaid Nasser

Zaid Nasser is one of the most authentic voices on saxophone today. As the son of jazz and blues great Jamil Nasser (nee George Joyner), Zaid was born and bred on the jazz scene. As a young saxophonist, he often spent his days with Papa Jo Jones, getting lessons in jazz and life from Ffather Time himself. Early on, he was sitting in with Lou Donaldson and George Coleman. He has been on the New York scene now for over twenty years. He's played with Cecil Payne, Junior Cook, Jon Hendricks, and Harold Mabern. Zaid spent three years with Calvin Newborn's band in Memphis, crisscrossing the south and playing in roadside juke joints, developing a rich, deep sound all of his own

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
