Harlem-based Emmet Cohen Trio makes their Charlotte debut at the JAZZ ROOM performing selections from Cohen’s latest album “Future Stride”, paying homage to Piano Greats of yesterday, with an innovative modern spin.

Piano phenom, Emmet Cohen, brings his all-star trio featuring bassist Russell Hall and drummer Kyle Poole. The trio is known for its range and uplifting dynamism, representing Cohen’s “kaleidoscopic sense of musical narrative,” as noted in Downbeat Magazine. Expect to be treated to a master class in stylistic juxtapositions, including the melding of stride, blues, church, swing, bebop, free, and contemporary styles, resulting in the innovative sound of Jazz’s future.

Multifaceted American jazz pianist and composer Emmet Cohen is one of his generation’s pivotal artistic figures. Downbeat praised the “nimble touch, measured stride and warm harmonic vocabulary” he employs to communicate with other musicians and audiences.
He has appeared in venues around the globe, from the Newport Jazz Festival, to the Washington DC Kennedy Center, to the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. His leadership and collaboration with artists like Ron Carter, Jimmy Cobb, George Coleman, and Jimmy Heath have led to his 4-album landmark “Masters Legacy Series” among other noteworthy albums including his latest 2021 release “Future Stride”. During the 2020 lockdown, Cohen developed “Live From Emmet’s Place,” a series of weekly performances by his trio and special guests livestreamed from his New York. And May 20 and 21, you’ll find him here, at the JAZZ ROOM.
