Kenny Barron

w/ Regina Carter, Terri Lyne Carrington, & Eddie Henderson

NOV 8–11 | KENNY BARON

Nov 08
Miner Auditorium

For this night of duets, the pianist and NEA Jazz Master is joined by violinist Carter, trumpeter Henderson and drummer Carrington — three master musicians with whom Barron has had a long and distinguished history. First recording together in the early 70s, Barron and Henderson share a deep, telepathic connection. A veteran bandleader and sideman, Henderson came to fame with Herbie Hancock and currently performs with the Cookers. A MacArthur “genius grant” recipient, Carter worked with Barron on his 1999 album Spirit Song and her Rhythms of the Heart from the same year. The pair reunited for their exquisite 2001 duet release, Freefall. Playing together in Barron’s trio and with Stan Getz, Barron and Carrington have enjoyed a musical partnership going back to Carrington’s teenage years, when the pianist performed on her first album, TLC and Friends, recorded when the prodigious young drummer was 16.

ABOUT KENNY BARON
Called “one of the top jazz pianists in the world” by The Los Angeles Times, Kenny Barron is an NEA Jazz Master and eleven-time GRAMMY nominee who helped define and extend the jazz tradition since his work with Dizzy Gillespie in the early ‘60s catapulted him into the spotlight. Extensive work with Freddie Hubbard, Yusef Lateef, Stan Getz, James Moody and Ron Carter built his peerless reputation as a sideman, and he has recorded nearly 50 albums as a bandleader over his five-decade career. A seven-time recipient of Best Pianst by the Jazz Journalists Association, Barron leads an ironclad trio with bassist Kiyoshi Kitagawa and drummer Johnathan Blake, and regularly performs as a soloist and in duet with bassist Dave Holland and violinist Regina Carter. Having taught piano and harmony at Rutgers University for over 25 years, he is currently on the faculty of the Julliard School of Music and was awarded Honorary Doctorates from Berklee College of Music and SUNY Empire State.

A signature mix of rock power, jazz hipness and relaxed precision.
