Event Details

hal-galper-sm Pianist Hal Galper reunites with bassist Jeff Johnson and drummer John Bishop. Galper disbanded the trio in 2000 after ten years of touring internationally, and spent the following six years "in the shed" studying, practicing and developing his uniquely original style of playing. Often episodic, the trio’s spontaneity and intuitive interaction spans the lexicon of jazz history. “...the high level of integration and communication the trio displays is rare and quite thrilling to experience...” - Downbeat Magazine, on The Hal Galper Trio’s latest, “Airegin Revisited” Hal Galper With over 90 recordings to his credit, 30 as a leader in his own right, pianist, composer, publisher, educator, author and touring artist Hal Galper is best known for his work with Chet Baker, Cannonball Adderley, John Scofield and the Phil Woods Quintet. His recordings as a leader with Mike and Randy Brecker are considered among the best. Graduating from the Berklee College of Music at the height of the bebop era, his reputation grew steadily in the changing environment of jazz. He anchored such bands as The Slide Hampton Quartet, The Lee Konitz Duo, The Stan Getz Quartet and many others. His biography is listed in the National Encyclopedia of Jazz and he has 100 original compositions recorded and published. He has won a Grammy nomination and a Grammy for his recordings with the award-winning Phil Woods Quartet and Quintet.
