CHRIS GESTRIN PLAYS BILL EVANS' LIVE @ THE VILLAGE VANGUARD
Time 8:00 pm
Vancouver-based pianist Chris Gestrin is unquestionably one of the major jazz talents in the country and is in high demand as a musician, composer, and producer. With an ear for texture and subtlety, Gestrin also swings hard and is equally comfortable playing straight-ahead jazz and free improv. This fantastic trio, which features bassist André Lachance and drummer Dylan van der Schyff, seamlessly combines original compositions, jazz standards and free improvisations. Introspective, beautiful and exciting, these three long time and highly sought after Vancouver creative musicians always display a high level of musical communication and interactivity. For this performance they will be paying tribute to the classic 1961 Bill Evans Trio recording which was resulted in two different albums. 'Sunday At The Village Vanguard' and 'Waltz For Debby'.
