Music/Lucas Pino's latest Albums.

The Answer is No

(Outside In Music) 2017

"Pino makes the most of that [customary lineup], deftly balancing an intimate small-group sound with that of a much larger ensemble...In sum, an exemplary second outing by Pino's topnotch No Net Nonet".

- ALL ABOUT JAZZ

"The majestic harmonic power and rhythmic pliancy from Pino's nonet are matched by his imaginative compositions and the velvety tone and biting melodicism on tenor sax."

- DOWNBEAT

The Answer Is No is the band s follow-up release to No Net Nonet (2015), and features seven highly inventive original compositions by Pino. The Answer Is No is the response to a world inundating us with constant opinions, ideas, and manufactured narratives; it is an invitation to listeners, to unchain themselves from any preconceived expectations, opening them up to infinite possibilities.

No Net Nonet

(Origin Records) 2015

"So there is hope after all...remarkably creative"

- ALL ABOUT JAZZ

"Pino shows himself to be an inventive melodic thinker"

- DOWNBEAT

"Pino himself has an old soul of a sound on his horn, warm and rich"

- JAZZ WEEKLY

“That feeling of navigating the unexpected is probably the most exciting part of watching a group like [the No Net Nonet] perform...with all of its members sonically bouncing around, building and expanding upon each other's ideas until a greater sum bursts forth...”

- THE VILLAGER

"Pino's deep-souled soloing is consistently smart and spirited"

- CADENCE

With his monthly residency at New York's Smalls Jazz Club, saxophonist Lucas Pino has developed his No Net Nonet into an exciting and deeply musical improvising ensemble. Performing all original compositions, the group forges new ground while maintaining a rich, organic, swinging center. No Net Nonet is the namesake band's debut recording.

Yellow Flower With Snail

(Port Fenix Music) 2008

This recording features the power-house quintet that was first brought together during a summer tour to Barcelona, Spain on behalf of the Brubeck Jazz Institute back in 2006. These fine young musicians, now world class professionals in their own right, are all alumni of the prestigious program, and have been long-time collaborators and friends ever since.

 

With the spirit of live performance in mind, this album features seven original compositions by Lucas Pino, as well as the classic standard, "Stairway to the Stars". The recording proves to be a shining debut from Pino, and a strong statement from this rare demonstration of spontaneous and collabortive playing.
