This Thursday, October 12th, The Jazz Gallery is excited to kick off a new series in partnership with the Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning (JCAL) in Queens. For one Thursday a month from October through May, the Gallery and JCAL will present shows featuring some of the Gallery’s favorite young groups—a true kaleidoscope of jazz in New York right now.
For the first show of this new series, John Escreet will take the stage at JCAL with his trio. Since his arrival in New York, Escreet has established himself as one of the city’s most versatile pianists, working within a variety of idioms and with diverse performers, from David Binney to Antonio Sanchez to Tyshawn Sorey to Evan Parker. Before heading out to Queens for Thursday’s performance, check out Escreet’s riveting set with Sorey and bassist John Hébert, below.
The John Escreet Trio performs at the Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning this Thursday, October 12th, 2017. The group features Mr. Escreet on piano and bass and drums TBA. One set at 8 P.M. $10 general admission. Purchase tickets here.
