Jazz Pianist Barry Green
Thursday, April 30, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm$13
“This pianist can effortlessly sustain a graceful Bill Evans-like lyrical swing, but also massages the ideas of others.” John Fordham – The Guardian
Barry’s star is rising high on the European Jazz scene. He has accompanied, led, and recorded with many of the world’s leading Jazz artists including Dave Friesen, Bobby Watson, Perico Sambeat, Charles McPherson, Deborah Brown, Ben Street, Drew Gress, Chris Cheek, Tom Rainey, Gerald Cleaver, Stan Sulzmann and many more.
He started his own record label called Moletone records in 2008. The first release was the trio record “The Music of Chance” featuring Ben Street and Jeff Williams, this received glowing reviews. A duo album followed this featuring the great bass player Dave Green, “Turn Left at Monday”, performing rare songs by Alec Wilder and Ornette Coleman. His third release on Moletone records is “Babelfish” (you put it in your ear!), with vocalist Brigitte Beraha, and featuring Chris Laurence and Paul Clarvis.
In January 2014 Barry recorded two trio albums in New York; the first with Chris Cheek and Gerald Cleaver titled “Great News”, and the next with Drew Gress and Tom Rainey called “Almost There”..
