Harlem based piano phenom, Emmett Cohen, swings through town with his all-star trio featuring Late Show with Stephen Colbert bassist, Russell Hall and drummer Kyle Poole, recently on tour with Wynton Marsalis. The trio is known for its range and uplifting dynamism, representing Cohen's "kaleidoscopic sense of musical narrative", as noted in Downbeat Magazines current edition. Audience members can expect to be treated to a master class in stylistic juxtapositions, including the melding of stride, blues, church, swing, bebop, free and contemporary styles, resulting in the innovative sound of Jazz's future. The trio will also feature selections from Cohens latest album releases, "Masters Legacy Series Vol. 1", which features famed Miles Davis drummer Jimmy Cobb and "Vol. 2", showcasing revered acoustic bass pioneer, Ron Carter.
