Sunday Sessions with The Bill Ware Trio TONIGHT at The National Bar & Dining Rooms!

September 8, 2013

bill_ware_2006_05_22Bill Ware played bass and piano early in his career, playing at the Harlem Jazzmobile. After spending several years playing Latin jazz, he formed his own Latin Jazz group, AM Sleep. He joined the Jazz Passengers in 1987, and in 1990 put together a group of sidemen as the Club Bird All-Stars, who accompanied him on a tour of Japan. Alongside this, he played with Groove Collective and Steely Dan in the first half of the 1990s. Later in the decade he teamed up with fellow former Jazz Passengers, Brad Jones and E. J. Rodriguez, in the ensemble Vibes. His 2001 tribute to Duke Ellington was recorded with Marc Ribot on guitar. Deborah Harry guested on his 2002 effort Four. In the mid-2000s, Ware did several projects blending jazz with Western classical musicas well as 5 film scores (with fellow Jazz Passengers bandmate Roy Nathanson).

Tonight The Bill Ware Trio will be featured as part of the Sunday Sessions Series at The National Bar & Dining Rooms, located in the Benjamin Hotel, at 50th Street and Lexington Avenues. Mr. Ware will have Jamie Affoumado on Drums, and Brad Jones on Bass. The music happens from 6pm-10pm and the acoustics in the room are fantastic! Chef Geoffrey Zakarian loves hosting great musicians at his grand cafe and we’d love to see you in the house!
