Bennett Paster Trio @ Mezzrow, Sunday 1/19

Keyboardist, composer and producer Bennett Paster's June, 2019 release Indivisible has garnered critical reviews in the press and has been played around the country on college and public radio stations.

Paster's trio, with bassist Ed Howard and drummer Joe Strasser, return to Mezzrow in NYC on Sunday, January 19th (MLK Day Weekend) with sets at 7:30 and 9pm. Expect to hear a broad-based selection of standards, jazz standards, originals and even some Stevie Wonder and Beatles songs performed in a swinging while conversational, classic jazz piano trio context. Featuring an expressive 6'2" Steinway A piano, Mezzrow is NYC's premier intimate piano listening room, so be sure to make reservations in advance.

"A very fine keyboardist and pianist, Bennett Paster grows by leaps and bounds with every project. On his new CD Indivisible, he doesn't synthesize his influences, but rather turns every composition into his own private vision of blues, mainstream jazz, funk, New Orleans and beyond… He displays bebop sensibilities while reserving the best of his immense talents for a sense of teamwork." (MGN, Hot House Magazine, June 2019)
