August 2 Special Event: Collin Shook CD Release Party @ The Nash
Aug 2 @ 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM


Ticket info coming soon!

Collin Shook – piano, Max Goldschmid – trumpet, Mike Moynihan – tenor saxophone, Zach Levine – bass, Tim Rachbach – drums

Collin Shook, at 26, is an award-winning American jazz pianist, composer, and bassist. After 5 years of performing and recording in Tucson AZ (2009-14), Collin relocated to Austin, Texas, as his home base from where he performs piano and double bass as a sideman and leader.

Collin’s compositions and voice as a pianist lends towards a blend of more modern, post-bop pianistic styles, drawing influence from Bill Evans, McCoy Tyner, Tommy Flannigan, as well as Brad Mehldau, Stefano Bollani, Aaron Parks…. “Clearly Shook knows his Bill Evans, a joyous thing. His pacing, voicing and dramatic builds have Evans whispering in his ear.” – Marc Myers 2012

Collin’s second record is due in the Spring of 2016 under the Swiss label “Unit Jazz”, featuring 6 original compositions for quintet featuring Tucson’s finest: Mike Moynihan, Max Goldschmid, Dylan DeRobertis, and Tim Rachbach. (

Collin teamed up with Tucson’s Matt Pirc (drums) and Dylan DeRobertis (double bass) in the Fall of 2010, where they began writing and performing original music. Their debut album, “Derivatives” (Mont Elefant-2012), features 11 of these original compositions. (

Collin received the “Best Keyboardist” award from the Tucson TAMMIES (Local Music Awards) in 2012, and two of his bands (Collin Shook Trio and Black Jackalope Ensemble) placed in 2nd and 3rd place in the “Best Jazz Band” category for Tucson.
