Kenny Barron Trio
Saturday 3 June
Melbourne Recital Centre
Kenny Barron is unrivalled in his ability to mesmerise audiences with his elegant playing, sensitive melodies and dynamic rhythms.
Spotted by Dizzy Gillespie when still in his teens, Barron has illuminated the jazz world for over five decades, working with the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Stan Getz and Roy Haynes.
Named by Los Angeles Times as “one of the top jazz pianists in the world”, Barron has received nine Grammy nominations, six Best Pianist Awards from the Jazz Journalists Association, and consistently won jazz critics and readers polls in Downbeat, Jazz Times and Jazziz magazines. He was inducted into the American Jazz Hall of Fame in 2005 and as an NEA Jazz Master in 2010.
With deep respect for the jazz tradition and irrepressible warmth and creativity, this unforgettable performance will feature works from Barron’s most recent Grammy-nominated release, Book of Intuition.
The Kenny Barron Trio will also be performing at The Basement in Sydney on Thursday 1 June. For more information, click here.
