JOHN LEE "THREE GENERATIONS TRIO"
Time 8:00 pm
Known for his deep rooted swing with a modern edge, John Lee channels both vigorous energy and delicate emotion to any audience with his musical charisma and pure virtuosity. After relocating back to Nanaimo, BC from Boston, MA in 2016, the twenty-three year old multi-instrumentalist has quickly become an on call sideman for many award-winning artists and has already performed with the likes of George Colligan, Brad Turner, Ingrid Jensen, and Cyrus Chestnut. The Three Generations Trio is a new piano trio project which pays homage to the concepts, styles, and repertoires of the greatest piano trios of the bebop/hard bop era led by pianists such as Red Garland, Oscar Peterson, Hampton Hawes, and Ahmad Jamal. A performance of this dynamic trio can be described as "speaking the history with a modern voice and dialect." With Tony Genge on piano, Sean Drabitt on bass, and John Lee drums.
