The Emmet Cohen Trio: A Handful of Keys

Harlem based piano phenom, Emmet Cohen, swings through town with his all-star trio featuring Late Show with Stephen Colbert’s 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 Magazine’s 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 swing’s future. The Trio will also feature selections from Cohen’s latest album release entitled the Masters Legacy Series Vol. 1 featuring Jimmy Cobb, famed Miles Davis drummer.
