Piano Jazz Series: Uri Caine
“Master improviser.” —The Guardian
Acclaimed pianist Uri Caine brings his formidable trio to Zinc for a splendid evening of jazz piano on Tuesday, August 16. He’s supported by bassist Mark Helias and drummer Ben Perowsky.
Jazz pianist/composer Uri Caine brings an eclectic array of disciplines and influences to his music. His own Jewish heritage, his classical and jazz training, and his interest in electronics combine in ambitious hybrids that are often challenging but always inventive.
Caine has received commissions to compose music for the American Composers Orchestra, The Arditti Quartet, The Vienna Volksoper, Concerto Koln, The Basel Chamber Orchestra, and The Beaux Arts Trio among others. His most recent orchestral composition “Sunburst” was performed in June 2016 at the Teatro Massimo in Palermo, Sicily. He also served as the Director of The Venice Biennale in 2003. Caine has received grants from The National Endowment for the Arts, The Pew Foundation, and The USA Artist Fellowships and has performed at numerous festivals including the North Sea, Monterey, Montreal, and Newport Jazz Festival as well as classical festivals like the Salzburg Festival, the Munich Opera, Holland Festival, IRCAM and Great Performers at Lincoln Center. He has recorded over 30 albums as a leader and was nominated for a Grammy® Award for The Othello Syndrome (Winter and Winter) in 2009.
Showtimes are at 7:00 PM and 8:30 pm. Tickets: $25 advance / $30 day of show. For more info, visit http://zincjazzcom.
