This Thursday, October 6th, The Jazz Gallery is proud to welcome another new, young talent to our stage for this first time—pianist and drummer Julius Rodriguez. A native of White Plains, NY, and a student in Juilliard’s jazz program, Rodriguez is one of those rare rhythm section doublers, calling to mind Jack DeJohnette. While Rodriguez spent this past summer touring with the Next Generation Jazz Orchestra and backing up singer Macy Gray at the City Winery on drums, he’ll be playing piano at the Gallery this week along with a cadre of talented peers.
Before coming to see Rodriguez and company in person, check out his debut record as a leader, produced by longtime trumpeter and arranger Don Sickler, and featuring several of Rodriguez’s original compositions.
Julius Rodriguez plays The Jazz Gallery on Thursday, October 6th, 2016. The group features Mr. Rodriguez on piano, Morgan Guerin on tenor saxophone & EWI, Daryl Johns on bass, and Michael Ode on drums. Sets are at 7:30 and 9:30 P.M. $15 general admission (FREE for members) for each set. Purchase tickets here.
