TAMIR HENDELMAN is one of the giants of contemporary jazz piano. He is a linchpin (for more than 15 years now) of the Jeff Hamilton Trio, thought by many to be the best piano trio in the business. He is also the pianist for the Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra, and has performed with many of the major names in jazz. One special gig was for Barbra Streisland’s last intimate nightclub performance at the Village Vanguard in New York in 2009.
He is the recipient of awards from ASCAP and from the National Foundation For Advancement in the Arts, and at age 14 won Yamaha’s national keyboard competition.
Tamir’s trio is completed by Alex Frank on bass and Dean Koba on drums, two young artists making names for themselves in Los Angeles and beyond. Tamir is a Resonance Records recording artist, and the trio performs widely in the U.S. and abroad.
We are very fortunate to have JACKIE RYAN performing with the Hendelman Trio. Called “one of the outstanding jazz vocalists of her generation,” by critic Christopher Loudon in Jazz Times, Jackie, with her “astonishing contralto voice” (DownBeat), has headlined at all the major jazz venues, from Birdland in New York to Ronnie Scott’s in London, and has sung and recorded with the likes of John and Gerald Clayton, the late Toots Thielemans, Benny Green, Eric Alexander, and many, many more.
This is a match made in jazz heaven, and we suggest you get your tickets early, as this special concert is certain to sell out.
