This Friday, March 11th, The Jazz Gallery is proud to welcome trumpeter Michael Rodriguez back to our stage. Rodriguez has established himself as one of the most versatile sidemen in New York over the past 15 years or so, playing with everyone from Charlie Haden and Joe Lovano, to Ryan Keberle’s Catharsis, to the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. These varied experiences filter into Rodriguez’s work as a leader as well. Eclecticism is on full display in a recent performance of Rodriguez’s quintet below, as the group effortlessly shifts from Bill Frisell’s lyrical ballad “Throughout” to jaunty hard bop.
Rodriguez will present an intimate quartet of his peers at the Gallery this week, including drummer (and fellow member of Keberle’s Catharsis) Eric Doob, pianist Adam Birnbaum, and bassist Zach Brown.
Michael Rodriguez plays The Jazz Gallery on Friday, March 11th, 2016. The group features Mr. Rodriguez on trumpet, Adam Birnbaum on piano, Zach Brown on bass, and Eric Doob on drums. Sets are at 7:30 and 9:30 P.M. $22 general admission ($12 for members) for each set. Purchase tickets here.
