André Mehmari, piano
January 19, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Pianist, composer and master improvisor André Mehmari returns to Kerrytown Concert House in arguably his most compelling musical setting – the classic piano trio with bassist Neymar Dias and drummer Sérgio Reze.
There is something special about the sound of the piano trio that propels master pianists to another level. The trios of Keith Jarrett and Brad Mehldau – to whom Brazilian pianist André Mehmari is often likened – provide evidence of the power of piano trio alchemy. Mehmari now brings forth his trio – bassist Neymar Dias and drummer Sérgio Reze – to explore the work of Clube de Esquina. Led by Milton Nascimento, this group of Brazilian artists blended ideas from pop, folk music, bossa nova, jazz, and classical avant-garde to create hymns honoring friendship and dialogue that are among the greatest treasures of Brazilian music.
