|About Jim Nolet
NY based Jazz violinist and composer Jim Nolet began classical studies at the age of seven, just six years later turning to improvisational performance. His professional debut soon followed, and he later attended the Julliard School as well as Cornish Institute of the Arts, at the latter studying privately under bass virtuoso Gary Peacock. Cutting his teeth on the Manhattan club circuit, Nolet played with the likes of the Jazz Passengers, Cecil Taylor, Don Cherry and Hilton Ruiz before recording his acclaimed 1994 debut With You with saxophonist David Murray and bassist Brad Jones. Syzygy followed five years later; Arco Voz was released in fall 2000.
