Uri Caine Trio

Keyboard wizard Uri Caine first made a name for himself as sideman to edgy improvisers like John Zorn and Dave Douglas. Across 22 albums as a leader, he’s since carved out a niche as a true sonic adventurer with projects that place him at the forefront of today’s jazz world. Caine’s basic unit is the piano trio, either acoustic or electric. On the Rhodes, he’s delivered high-intensity albums with his Bedrock trio, featuring Tim Lefebvre and Zach Danziger, as well as the Philadelphia Experiment, a jazz-funk project with Christian McBride and Questlove of The Roots. Eclectic and omnivorous, Caine also delves deeply into the classical canon re-imagined through a jazz lens, with records that explore the works of Bach, Beethoven, Mahler, Schumann and Mozart. A commission from the Venice Biennale sparked The Othello Syndrome, a staged opera inspired by Verdi’s Otello that earned a 2009 Grammy Award nomination for Best Classical Crossover Album. To SFJAZZ Caine brings his latest project, Siren, a New York-based acoustic trio with upright bassist John Hébert (John Abercrombie, Fred Hersch) and the kinetically charged drummer Ben Perowsky (Pat Martino, Mike Stern).
