This Wednesday, September 25, The Jazz Gallery is pleased to welcome pianist David Virelles back to our stage for two sets. Presenting music in a trio format, Virelles will be joined by frequent collaborators Rashaan Carter on bass and Eric McPherson on drums.
Recently, Virelles has been busy balancing his work as a bandleader and collaborator. In August, Virelles joined drummer Andrew Cyrille’s trio for a run at the Village Vanguard, before joining Ravi Coltrane’s group at the Charlie Parker Jazz Festival in Harlem. Virelles then played the Chicago Jazz Festival with an all-star group of Latinx musicians (and Gallery stalwarts) including Miguel Zenon, Melissa Aldana, Ricky Rodriguez, and Antonio Sanchez. For Latinx Heritage Month, Virelles was profiled by the streaming service Tidal (alongside Zenon and Camila Meza), which you can check out here.
Before hearing Virelles and his trio live, take a listen to their recent performance at Roulette as part of the annual Vision Festival, alongside percussionist Román Diaz, below.
