This Tuesday, September 19th, The Jazz Gallery is pleased to welcome pianist Theo Hill and his trio back to our stage. Over the past decade-plus in New York, Hill has become a highly-regarded sideman with the likes of the Mingus Big Band, drummer Jeff “Tain” Watts, and trombonist Frank Lacy, his irrepressible energy always raising the band to new heights. Hill has only recently begun to step out as a leader, releasing his debut record Live at Smalls (SmallsLIVE) in 2014, and a followup, Promethean (Posi-tone) earlier this year. Check out his decidedly funky reimagining of Bobby Timmons’ “This Here” below.
Hill is already gearing up for his third record. After his show at the Gallery this week with Rashaan Carter on bass and Rudy Royston on drums, Hill and company will head into the studio. Come on by the Gallery on Tuesday to get a taste of what this hard-swinging trio can do.
The Theo Hill Trio plays The Jazz Gallery on Tuesday, September 19th, 2017. The group features Mr. Hill on piano, Rashaan Carter on bass, and Rudy Royston on drums. Sets are at 7:30 and 9:30 P.M. $15 general admission (FREE for members). Purchase tickets here.
