The Russ Nolan Latin Jazz Quartet featuring Manuel Valera was formed in March 2013 as the group first performed at 92Y Tribeca, the very same venue Russ heard Manuel and his Latin Jazz Grammy Nominated New Cuban Express one year before. Manuel's sophisticated rhythmic and harmonic compositions has heavily influenced Russ' compositions, propelling the quartet to a higher level onto their first recording 'Relentless' (Rhinoceruss Music) released in January this year. Although less-recognized, bassist Michael O'Brien and drummer Brian Fishler are in high demand in NYC due to their skillfull interpretation of just about any style of music put before them. Both appeared on Russ' first Latin Jazz recording 'Tell Me' in 2012.
