2 pm Pre-concert Conversation: Three for the Road
Series producer Bruce Eaton highlights some of the unique trios in jazz history.
Grammy Award-winning saxophonist Joe Lovano needs no introduction: he is “the tenor titan for our times” (Allmusic), “a full-edged jazz giant” (Bruce Lundvall, Blue Note Records). Beginning with his work with native Buffalonian Mel Lewis, Lovano’s ever-escalating career led to touring and recording with the major jazz musicians of the late twentieth century, including Herbie Hancock, Mulgrew Miller, Ed Blackwell, Paul Motian, Bill Frisell, John Scofield, and Jim Hall.
His nearly thirty albums for Blue Note, thirteen Grammy Award nominations, and a bevy of jazz awards trace his development into a universally admired artist, driven to expand the jazz tradition well into the twenty-first century. Trio Tapestry, his forthcoming debut as a leader for ECM Records, is described by Lovano as featuring “the expressive beauty of Marilyn Crispell on piano, and one of my lifelong inspirations, Carmen Castaldi on drums . . . opening the door for some of the most intimate personal music I’ve recorded so far.”
