Leslie Pintchik Trio at Soapbox Gallery

Friday November 17, 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm


Before embarking on a career in music, jazz pianist and composer Leslie Pintchik was a teaching assistant in English literature at Columbia University, where she also received her Master of Philosophy degree in seventeenth-century English literature. She first surfaced on the Manhattan scene in a trio with legendary bassist Red Mitchell at Bradley’s, and in the ensuing years Pintchik formed her own trio, which was one of four finalists in the 1995 Cognac Hennessy Jazz Search. She performs regularly at New York City and East Coast jazz venues that have included Jazz at Kitano, Bar Next Door, The Blue Note, Cornelia Street Café, 55 Bar, Smalls, Scullers Jazz Club and The Side Door, among others. Pintchik has released seven CDs as well as a DVD of a live performance. Pintchik’s sixth CD (2018) “You Eat My Food, You Drink My Wine, You Steal My Girl!” reached number 4 in the country for radio spins on JazzWeek, and also remained in the top 10 for five weeks. That same year, two tracks from Pintchik’s CDs were included in the soundtrack of Orson Welles’ final movie, “The Other Side of the Wind.” DownBeat Magazine praised Pintchik as “a composer of emotional depth and effortless lyricism.” Pintchik’s long-standing trio includes the superb, empathic bassist, Scott Hardy, who worked for many years with the great “Texas Tenor,” Arnett Cobb, in his native Houston. Bass Player magazine spotlighted Hardy’s “lyrical phrasing, cross-register command and burnished tone.” And the powerfully original drummer, Michael Sarin, has long been at the center of New York City’s genre-bending jazz and improvisation community. JazzReview.com wrote “Sarin is simply masterful… near magical drumming.”
