Dave Meder at The Jazz Kitchen
2019 American Pianists Awards finalist
In this performance, the Dave Meder Songs and Stories Trio brings a fresh chamber music-like approach to the traditional jazz trio format: moving seamlessly from old gospel standards to bold deconstructions of avant-gardists like Thelonious Monk and Andrew Hill, to intricate explorations inspired by American minimalists like Philip Glass and John Adams. They will also be celebrating the release of Meder’s sophomore album, Unamuno Songs and Stories , a stunning response to recent social upheavals in the United States. The trio is lauded for its remarkably "postmodern sense of stylistic adventure," incorporating what All About Jazz describes as “a vibrant hybrid of the whole American spectrum."
