The Helen Sung Trio This Week at Jazz on Fifth!

May 16, 2011

Award-winning jazz pianist/composer Helen Sung is pioneering her own path: as an Asian-American artist, she challenges stereotypes with a singular sound & style. An aspiring classical pianist before “a Tommy Flanagan solo changed everything,” Sung is a graduate of the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz Performance, and has gone on to work with such jazz masters as Clark Terry, Ron Carter, Wayne Shorter, and MacArthur Fellow Regina Carter. Based in New York City, she has released several critically acclaimed albums and, in addition to her own band, can be seen with the Mingus Big Band, T.S.Monk, and Terri Lyne Carrington. In performance, Sung welcomes “listeners into her world: a place of passion, adventure and drama, and truckloads of rhythm…taking audiences for a ride they won’t soon forget.”

See her trio, live, tonight thru next Friday May 20 at Jazz Bar on Fifth.
