“David Hazeltine is for sure the brightest star on the jazz piano horizon. His style has a deep-seated commitment to jazz history while communicating a wealth of ‘today’ ideas.” —Cedar Walton
Acclaimed jazz pianist David Hazeltine brings his formidable trio to Zinc on Tuesday, August 23. He’s supported by Neal Miner on bass and Pete Van Nostrand on drums.
David Hazeltine is one of a handful of contemporary pianists who has mastered all the major musical skills, from improvisation and technique to accompaniment, arranging, and composition. Even more impressive, David is the rare artist able to innovate in each category. Thus, it’s no surprise that he’s the most recorded contemporary jazz pianist of our time, having recorded thirty-five CDs as a leader and hundreds more as a sideman, on various major labels globally. A Milwaukee native, David was playing the clubs as a preteen, and before he’d even come of age, he was already grabbing the attention and respect of jazz legends like Sonny Stitt and Chet Baker. They urged him to make the move to New York City, which he did in 1992.
Showtimes are at 7:00 PM and 8:30 pm. Tickets: $25 advance / $30 day of show. For more info, visit http://zincjazzcom.
