Trio Imagination is a new ensemble featuring veteran musician legends Andrew Cyrille (drums) and Reggie Workman (bass), with the young virtuoso Cuban pianist David Virelles. The group formed after Oliver Lake retired from performing in early 2020, ending the renowned TRIO 3, his longtime band with Andrew and Reggie. The Bang on a Can Festival in NYC asked who else they might want to play with, and Reggie and Andrew both named David. That concert in Spring of 2022 confirmed the chemistry they thought they would have. Hence Trio Imagination.
Individually their credentials are off the charts. Andrew has played with everyone from Coleman Hawkins and Mary Lou Williams to Albert Ayler and Cecil Taylor, and received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Vision Festival in NYC last year. Reggie, who played bass with Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers and John Coltrane in his youth, was recently named an NEA Jazz Master. David, still in his 30’s, has already recorded and played with some of the most creative musicians in Jazz, including Henry Threadgill, Chris Potter, Steve Coleman, and Ravi Coltrane, and has won the Downbeat Rising Star Poll on piano. Don’t miss this rare chance to experience the extraordinary Trio Imagination in the beautiful Asbury Hall!
