This weekend, The Jazz Gallery is pleased to welcome pianist John Escreet’s group to our stage with special guest trumpeter Nicholas Payton. A composer and improviser of myriad interests, Escreet’s music this weekend will have a distinctly funky and electronic flavor—Escreet is bringing his full synth rig, and will be supported by the crack rhythm team of bassist Matt Brewer and drummer Justin Brown.
Before coming out to the show, check out Escreet’s group working through one of the leader’s knotty and unrelenting originals at the 55Bar this past fall.
The John Escreet group plays The Jazz Gallery on Friday, February 2, and Saturday, February 3, 2018. The group features Mr. Escreet on piano, Fender Rhodes, Prophet 6, and Roland TR-8; Nicholas Payton on trumpet; Matt Brewer on bass; and Justin Brown on drums. Sets are at 7:30 and 9:30 P.M. each night. $25 general admission ($10 for members), $35 reserved cabaret seating ($20 for members) for each set. Purchase tickets here.
