A Jazz Appreciation Month Celebration     

Back by popular demand, Harlem-based Emmet Cohen Trio returns to Charlotte for a three-night JAZZ ROOM residency, with special guest Houston Pearson (Thursday) to continue the April Jazz Appreciation Month (JAM) celebration.

Piano phenom, Emmet Cohen, returns to the JAZZ ROOM with his all-star trio and special guest, legendary saxophonist Houston Person. Known for its range and uplifting dynamism, the trio represents 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.

Houston Person is a legendary jazz tenor saxophonist and record producer with over 50 years of music recorded. With his robust sound and swinging style, tenor saxophonist Houston Person has kept the hard bop and organ-soaked soul-jazz traditions alive. One of the most soulful jazz players on the scene today, he is a musician who pays close attention to melody and has a deep sense of the blues.

 

 

The JAZZ ROOM provides a casual and intimate setting with tables and a full bar, reminiscent of the classic jazz rooms of yesteryear.
