“A highly gifted jazz pianist, bandleader and composer whose thoughtful playing is deeply rooted in bop.”—All Music
Andy LaVerne brings his trio to the Zinc Bar for a splendid evening of jazz piano. He’s supported by bassist Mike Richmond and drummer Jason Tiemann.
Jazz pianist, composer, and arranger Andy LaVerne studied at Juilliard, Berklee, and the New England Conservatory, and took private lessons from legendary jazz pianist Bill Evans. The list of musicians with whom LaVerne has worked reads like a Who’s Who in jazz: Frank Sinatra, Stan Getz, Woody Herman, Dizzy Gillespie, Chick Corea, Lionel Hampton, Michael Brecker, Elvin Jones, and numerous others.
A prolific recording artist, his projects as a leader number over 50, the most recent are Intuition, a duo with saxophonist Jerry Bergonzi (SteepleChase), and Epiphany, a collection of Andy’s newest compositions (ClaveBop).
