03.20.16Peter Mazza\\\'s Sunday Night Residency at the Bar Next Door continues!
For close to 15 years, Peter Mazza has held a vibrant trio residency at the Bar Next Door on Sunday Nights that is still ever-vital.
Peter has build a prolific repertoire of original arrangements of songs by the Jazz and American Songbook Composers, in addition to a body of his own compositions that feature his love of harmony and melodic and rhythmic counterpoint. The music is intricate and subtle but high energy and adventurous. Notably, these groups are sans-drums, but explore groove, swing and texture in tangible and inventive ways.
Although many people know his solo arrangements/performances from You Tube, this night presents those sounds adapted to the trio format, and features the interaction, creativity and excitement of the collaboration between him and his colleagues.
His most current/frequent trios include:
Misha Tsiganov on Keys and Thomson Kneeland on Bass
Lucas Pino on Saxophone with Marco Panascia on Bass
Andrew Gould on Saxophone and Tamir Schmerling on Bass
Although over the course of this residency, Peter has collaborated with with Hendrik Meurkens, John Ellis, Will Vinson, Donny McCaslin, Jon Irabagon, Itai Kriss, Etienne Charles, Hans Glawischnig, Matt
Penman, Ben Williams, Joe Martin, Ari Hoenig and many more...
