Eric Byrd Trio 2017

December 28, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Collectively, they have played with a real Who’s Who of jazz luminaries: trumpeters Wynton Marsalis and Randy Brecker, guitarists Charlie Byrd and Mike Stern, saxophonists Bob Berg, Buck Hill, David “Fathead” Newman, and Cecil Payne, and pianists George Colligan and Kenny Drew, Jr., among so many others.

For almost two decades, The Eric Byrd Trio has traveled the world as enthusiastic ambassadors of jazz. Rooted in swing and be-bop, The Trio also embraces gospel and the blues as core elements of their expansive performance style.

Their new batch of gospel/jazz-inspired sacred music, which has been very well received, will be the focus of this show.
