About The Event
Born and raised in Portland OR, Cyrus Nabipoor began playing trumpet at age 11. He wanted to play trombone, but it wouldn’t fit on his bike. As an adolescent Cyrus was taught by Cynthia Plank and trumpeter Derek Sims. In high school he joined the Alan Jones Academy of Music. Cyrus holds a Bachelor of Music from Loyola University New Orleans, where he graduated magna cum laude and was awarded outstanding undergraduate in both Jazz and Brass. While at Loyola, he studied with Nick Volz, Tony Dagradi and Jimbo Walsh. Cyrus also spent a very formative term at the Grieg Academy in Bergen, Norway studying with ECM legend Per Jørgensen and Martin Winter (Bergen Philharmonic). In 2015, Cyrus was awarded the International Trumpet Guild Jazz Scholarship.

Nicholas Morrison is an upright bassist living in Portland, Oregon. Drawing from influences ranging from Charlie Haden, Gary Peacock, and Ron Carter, Nick takes an active role in any musical environment they are a part of. Often performing a repertoire of Free-Music-informed standards, Nick engages the music from an attitude of deep listening and artistic liberty, while still maintaining the responsibility of the traditional Bassist.
Xavier is a 23 year old, American, drummer, composer, with French and Mexican heritage. He is a Graduate of the Cornish College of the Arts Music Department. Living in Seattle, Xavier is primarily focused on developing a compositional and playing style that is manifested in his quintet. He has a commitment to the study and roots of the jazz tradition but also finds all the ways in which the things he carries can influence his music. The music he composes is drawn from the music he grew up listening to, including classical music, latin jazz, Mexican pop-rock, or pop. He is a unique musician and composer that brings something new to the tradition of jazz and modern music. "The care that Xavier takes in his music comes through in every piece. You get the sense he is hearing the whole sound, the whole piece, the whole band and that he is carrying out a unique vision that pushes past the modern boundaries of genre" (Dawn Clement). The quintet was and continues to be a deep source of discovery and growth for Xavier as a musician. Beyond that, he has been an active member of Thomas Marriott's quintet. He also Leads an Octet, "DX-Tet", as well as a big band with his close musical cohort Dylan Hayes.
