New Year's Celebration with Ethan Iverson

Dec 31 | Tue | Time Varies | $25 and up
View Website

Acclaimed jazz pianist Ethan Iverson brings his formidable trio to Zinc ft. vocalist Marcie Harriell for a splendid evening of jazz. He's supported by bassist Corcoran Holt and drummer Vinnie Sperrazza. Pianist, composer, and writer Ethan Iverson was a founding member of The Bad Plus, a game-changing collective with Reid Anderson and David King. The New York Times called TBP "…Better than anyone at melding the sensibilities of post-60's jazz and indie rock." During his 17-year tenure TBP performed in venues as diverse as the Village Vanguard, Carnegie Hall, and Bonnaroo; collaborated with Joshua Redman, Bill Frisell, and the Mark Morris Dance Group; and created a faithful arrangement of Igor Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring and a radical reinvention of Ornette Coleman's Science Fiction. Iverson also has been in the critically-acclaimed Billy Hart quartet for well over a decade and occasionally performs with an elder statesman like Albert "Tootie" Heath or Ron Carter. For over 15 years Iverson's website Do the Math has been a repository of musician-to-musician interviews and analysis, surely one reason Time Out New York selected Iverson as one of 25 essential New York jazz icons: "Perhaps NYC's most thoughtful and passionate student of jazz tradition—the most admirable sort of artist-scholar."
