Kevin Hays' New Day Trio

  • Jazz Standard 116 East 27th Street New York, NY, 10016 United States (map)

Across the span of fifteen albums as a leader and years of performance on national and international stages with people like Chris Potter, Joshua Redman, and Nicholas Payton, Kevin Hays has become recognized as one of the premier jazz pianists of his generation. “There are plenty of talented pianists,” declared The New York Times, “but few have Hays’s melodic charms and sense of style.” Trumpeter Nicholas Payton stated: “I’ve never met a musician who is as perfect in their approach to improvisation.” This Jazz Standard one–nighter heralds the release of North, the New Day Trio’s new album and the successor to the acclaimed New Day (Sunnyside, 2015), with its imaginative treatments of songs by Henryk Gorecki and Bob Dylan, among others.
