Toronto native Nachoff has been bending and blending genres since his 2006 debut Magic Numbers, which fused a jazz trio with a string quartet. The captivating mashup continues with his latest album project called Flux, a bass-less quartet featuring alto saxophonist David Binney (Uri Caine, Chris Potter), keyboardist Matt Mitchell (Dave Douglas, Tim Berne) and drummer Nate Wood that draws on sounds and influences from the 1970s filtered through a 21st century lens. Improvisation, composition and orchestration all play integral roles in the structured evolution of each piece. Jazz, Rock, Pop, and Contemporary Classical currents are deftly fashioned into a cohesive and stirring sound. “I like mixing and matching things,” says Nachoff, who has composed for string, brass ensembles as well as jazz big bands. “I try to find commonalities between them to put people into different landscapes to improvise in.”
