“The brilliant playing of David Kikoski just smokes. His playing is sparkling.” —Chick Corea
Acclaimed jazz pianist David Kikoski brings his formidable trio to Zinc for a splendid evening of jazz piano. He’s supported by bassist Boris Kozlov and drummer Jonathan Blake.
Born in 1961, Dave was part of a musical family and given his first piano lessons at the age of six by his father. In his early teens, he began working with jazz and rock groups and won “The New Jersey Allstate Jazz Competition “. After high school, Kikoski would head to the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston where he earned a bachelor’s degree in piano. While at school he had a steady trio gig and met Pat Metheny who sat in with the band. A few years later they would record a CD together with Roy Haynes.
In 1984, the pianist decided to try his hand in New York where it didn’t take long for him to establish himself.
Drummer Roy Haynes would be the first to give Kikoski a break, leading to a productive association that lasts to this day.
