In March 2020, Lex Korten played The Jazz Gallery with Tyshawn Sorey’s sextet, the last live shows on the Gallery stage before the COVID shutdowns. This week, we’re pleased to welcome Korten back to our stage as a leader in his own right.

In Korten’s previous Gallery shows, he has showcased his compositional voice with bands featuring horn players like Jasper Dütz and Kalia Vadever. However, this will be his first time at the Gallery helming a classic piano trio, alongside bassist Adam Olszewski and drummer Kayvon Gordon. Before coming to checkout Korten’s trio vision at the Gallery, take a listen to his trio performance of Gerald Clayton’s “Trapped in a Dream,” recorded by Brave Sound NYC.

The Lex Korten Trio plays The Jazz Gallery on Thursday, June 10, 2021. The group features Mr. Korten on piano, Adam Olszewski on bass, and Kayvon Gordon on drums. Sets are at 7:30 and 9:30 P.M. $15 general admission (FREE for members), $25 reserved table seating ($10 for members) for each set. The sets will also be livestreamed—$20 general admission, $5 for members). Purchase tickets here.
