Pérez, Cohen, Potter Quintet with Larry Grenadier and Nate Smith

AFMDA - Join Us and Help Save Lives in Israel

(Oct. 11-13) (Tonight at 7:30 & 9:30) — Among the most influential and dynamic musicians of our time, the Grammy Award–winning pianist and composer Danilo Pérez is widely acclaimed both for his work with the Wayne Shorter band and as a bandleader and recording artist. In his previous appearance on our stage, Pérez re­prised the music from his classic album "Panamonk" (Impulse!, 1996); now he returns in a very special collaboration with two other established leaders, award–winning saxophonist Chris Potter and former SFJazz Collective trumpeter Avishai Cohen. This unit began working together as part of Pérez’s “Jazz 100” tour celebrating the centennials of Dizzy Gillespie, Ella Fitzgerald, Mongo Santamaria and Thelonious Monk; the trio discovered a uniquely rewarding musical and personal bond, and elected to reconvene after the tour to further explore their unmistakable chemistry. Fueled by the nonpareil rhythm section of Larry Grenadier (bass) and Nate Smith (drums), the burners will be turned up to “High” this week!
