NEA Jazz Master Kenny Barron is a “pianist, composer, and bandleader of apparently infinite resource and ingenuity” (The Guardian). At Carnegie Hall alone, Barron has performed with Dizzy Gillespie, Stan Getz, Freddie Hubbard, Charlie Haden, Kathleen Battle, and dozens more, and he now makes his long-awaited return during his 80th-birthday celebration year. His long-standing, Grammy-nominated Trio represents “the pinnacle of the jazz-piano tradition” (JazzTimes), with repertoire that spans 60 years of Barron’s original compositions and influential classics by Thelonious Monk and more.
