Piano Jazz Series: Ethan Iverson Trio at Zinc Bar (Early and Late Shows)

Saturday December 14, 2019, 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

$30

“Perhaps NYC’s most thoughtful and passionate student of jazz tradition—the most admirable sort of artist-scholar.” —TIME OUT NEW YORKAcclaimed jazz pianist Ethan Iverson brings his formidable trio to Zinc for a splendid evening of jazz piano. He’s supported by bassist Ben Street and drummer Tootie Heath.

Pianist, composer, and writer Ethan Iverson was a founding member of The Bad Plus, a game-changing collective with Reid Anderson and David King. The New York Times called TBP “…Better than anyone at melding the sensibilities of post-60’s jazz and indie rock.” During his 17-year tenure TBP performed in venues as diverse as the Village Vanguard, Carnegie Hall, and Bonnaroo; collaborated with Joshua Redman, Bill Frisell, and the Mark Morris Dance Group; and created a faithful arrangement of Igor Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring and a radical reinvention of Ornette Coleman’s Science Fiction.

Iverson also has been in the critically-acclaimed Billy Hart quartet for well over a decade and occasionally performs with an elder statesman like Albert “Tootie” Heath or Ron Carter. For over 15 years Iverson’s website Do the Math has been a repository of musician-to-musician interviews and analysis, surely one reason Time Out New York selected Iverson as one of 25 essential New York jazz icons: “Perhaps NYC’s most thoughtful and passionate student of jazz tradition—the most admirable sort of artist-scholar.”

Showtimes are at 7:30 pm & 9:00 pm. Tickets: $30. For more info call (212) 477-9462 or visit http://zincjazz.com.
