“Straight ahead excellence. A world-class jazz act.” —The New York Times
Acclaimed Dutch pianist Peter Beets brings his formidable quartet to Zinc for a splendid evening of jazz piano featuring saxophonist Eric Alexander. He’s supported by bassist Alexander Claffy and drummer Joe Farnsworth.
As one of the most sought-after jazz artists of our time, Peter Beets has attracted a devoted international audience, performing regularly at major jazz festivals and venues throughout Europe, the United States, and Asia. He has shared the stage with jazz greats such as Chick Corea, Wynton Marsalis, “Toots” Thielemans, Elvin Jones, George Coleman, Johnny Griffin, Benny Golson, and Kurt Rosenwinkel. One of his earliest recordings, “First Date” (1996), featured the great Jeff Hamilton on drums. In 2001 the Criss Cross label invited Peter for a series of CDs with his “New York Trio”, inviting artists like Willie Jones III, Larry Grenadier, and Greg Hutchinson, earning him international acclaim.
