Manhattan School of Music Presents the Harvie S Trio

On Thursday, March 27 at 7:30 PM, Manhattan School of Music faculty member Harvie S performs with his trio in the school's Ades Performance Space. Producer, bandleader, composer, and educator Harvie S has performed with masters in jazz music and masters in Latin music including Stan Getz, Pat Methany, Chet Baker, Dexter Gordon, Jim Hall, Michael Brecker, Gil Evans and countless others.
He can be heard on several hundred CDs with such greats as James Brown, Chick Corea, Mike Stern, John Scofield, David Leibman, Michael Brecker, Tom Harrell, Pucho and the Latin Soul Brothers, Kenny Barron, Pat Martino, Grover Washington Jr., David Mathews, Virginia Mayhew. In addition to his performance career, Harvie is an active educator; he has held the jazz bass instructor position at Manhattan School of Music for both undergraduate and graduate divisions since 1984.

Ever broadening his musical scope, Harvie started studying Afro-Cuban music eight years ago and has been on the Latin-jazz scene ever since. He combines both idioms in a bold new music with The Harvie S Trio. The music is best described as jazz on the Latin side combining the melodic and harmonic sophistication of jazz and the extraordinary rhythmic intensity of Latin music. The Harvie S Trio has performed throughout the world and their newly released third CD, Texas Rumba, is receiving rave reviews. It was No. 11 on the CMJ charts and No. 22 on the Jazz Week charts.

The Harvie S Trio concert is free and open to the public.
