The Steve Carrington Quartet w/Cyrus Chestnut on Piano Saturday November 22nd at The Rooster!

November 20, 2014

Here’s how Chick Corea described the experience of hearing the Jazz Healer, Steve Carrington play. After inviting Steve to sit in on a recent performance at New York’s legendary Blue Note, he said: “Keep that big, beautiful smile and that big, beautiful sound.”
Steve’s big sound and even bigger smile change the energy in any venue, from a low-key, late-night gig at The Fat Cat, to an elegant, early-evening concert at the Atrium in Jazz at Lincoln Center. While playing, Steve causes his tenor sax to chuckle. While pausing to listen to his bandmates, he can’t help but accompany them with his unmistakable, infectious laughter — it’s a musical instrument all by itself!
Tonight Steve is featuring Cyrus Chestnut on Piano. According to Time Magazine… “What makes Chestnut the best jazz pianist of his generation is a willingness to abandon notes and play space.” Cyrus Chestnut enjoys mixing styles and resists being typecast in any one niche, though his gospel sound is apparent on a number of his recordings. Additionally we’ve got the great Curtis Lundy on Bass and the amazing Greg Bandy on Drums. This promises to be one fascinating night of music. See you at the show!
