Clovis Nicolas Modern Jazz Bass Player
{

One of only a handful of bassists cutting any new or worthwhile ground in modern jazz
– Bop-N-Jazz

{

A formidable walker, with a big, resonant tone, Clovis Nicolas also distinguishes himself as a first-rate composer.
– DownBeat Magazine

{

You will hear, from Mr. Nicolas, well thought out bass lines that spur the band in the direction that he wants them to go… A very, very good bass sound
– Ron Carter

Clovis Nicolas is a jazz bass player and composer living in New York City, who graduated from the Juilliard School. His warm, precise and tasteful bass playing gained him a solid reputation on the international scene, which led to performances with artists such as Peter Bernstein, Herbie Hancock, Jeremy Pelt, Brad Mehldau, Harry Allen, Dee Dee Bridgewater and Curtis Fuller. Parallel to his busy schedule as a sideman, Clovis is also a band leader who released two albums for Sunnyside Record: “Nine Stories” (Best Albums of the Year in DownBeat) and “Freedom Suite Ensuite,” featuring Kenny Washington on drums.
