About the Artist(s)

The Blazing Eraz is a platform created by Tim Proznick that represents the eras of music and artists that have helped shape his musical journey into what it is today. Having grown up in a family of jazz enthusiasts, players, and educators, it has been the single, most consistent thing in his life. His appreciation comes from building a solid foundation in the many idioms of jazz, from BeBop like Miles & Coltrane, Basie Bigband, ECM from Abercrombie/Metheny, Fusion of Sco/McLaughlin, to new artists pushing the envelope such as Glasper, Yussef Kamaal, Chris Dave, & Thundercat.

With these foundations, the aim is to take the knowledge and wisdom received from a lifetime of listening, and applying it into new, modern forms of music through musical experimentation and exploration, without the borders of the “traditionalist”, while incorporating it to new technology & culture. From here, inspiration is drawn from the influence of hiphop culture as a whole, as well as electronic music and production, Funk, & world music ranging from Brazilian, Cuban, Afrobeat(s), and reggae.

The Blazing Eraz will be playing original compositions, as well as trio renditions from Flying Lotus, Madlib, Chick Corea, and others.

Tim Proznick will be performing on the drum kit, as well as exploring sounds & grooves on Native Instruments Maschine Sampler. Joining him will be some of his favourite musicians to work with, Tristan Paxton on Guitar, and Issah Contractor on both Bass & Drums.
