This Saturday, February 18th, The Jazz Gallery welcomes drummer Ferenc Nemeth and his two-piano band to our stage for two sets. A native of Hungary, Nemeth studied at Berklee and the Monk Institute before relocating to New York in 2003. Since then, he has established himself as one of the most rhythmically-agile players on the international scene, lending his talents to diverse groups led by the likes of pianist Kenny Werner, singer Jo Lawry, and oudist Dhafer Youssef. But Nemeth is perhaps best known for his work with guitarist Lionel Loueke, both in the collaborative group Gilfema and on Loueke’s solo records.
Nemeth’s new Double Piano Trio features keyboardists Kevin Hays and Sam Yahel, and finds Nemeth expanding his own palette with electronic effects. Don’t miss this exciting new group light up the Gallery stage with colorful textures and fleet-footed interplay.
The Ferenc Nemeth Double Piano Trio plays The Jazz Gallery on Saturday, February 18th, 2017. The group features Mr. Nemeth on drums, Kevin Hays on piano/keyboard, and Sam Yahel on Hammond Organ. Sets are at 7:30 and 9:30 P.M. $22 general admission ($12 for members) for each set. Purchase tickets here.
