Dave King Trio
Time 8:00 pm
Versatile and idiosyncratic Bad Plus drummer Dave King brings some lateral thinking to this trio project with pianist Bill Carrothers and bassist Billy Peterson. The trio’s melodic abstraction was showcased on 2012’s I’ve Been Ringing You, a collection of intense and sophisticated reinterpretations of standards, rich with free interplay and quiet rumination.
Dave King is one of the most celebrated drummers in modern jazz. His contributions to the Minneapolis and New York jazz scenes are incalculable, and his imagination and boundless enthusiasm behind (and around) the drum set are singular and stunning. Dave has recorded or performed with such luminaries as Bill Frisell, Joshua Redman, Jeff Beck, Tim Berne, Mason Jennings, Mark Morris Dance Company, Meat Beat Manifesto, and many others.
Bill Carrothers has collaborated as a pianist with some of the greatest names in jazz, including Joe Beck, Scott Colley, Buddy DeFranco, Dave Douglas, Curtis Fuller, Drew Gress, Billy Higgins, Lee Konitz, Gary Peacock, and Dewey Redman. Billy Peterson is one of the premier bass players in the world, as well as being a successful producer and arranger. He's been the bassist for the Steve Miller Band for 15 years and is also the musical director for a cooking show which is produced in the south of France, soon to be seen in North America.
