Misha Piagorsky Trio - NYC Series

Misha is emerging as one of the most innovative musicians on the international music scene today. His unique marriage of powerful melodies with an unusual harmonic sensitivity gives his sound a deeply personal yet cosmopolitan dimension, reflecting his experience as a Russian-Jewish émigré growing up in urban America.

The winner of the 2004 Thelonious Monk Composers Competition, his works were recently hailed by The Boston Globe as "a beautiful merging of the worlds of serious jazz and pop."

The Wee Trio

Roughly one year ago, guitarist Cliff Hines brought together a cadre of New Orleans' finest musicians and what followed was the recording of Ashes To Ashes – A David Bowie Intraspective.

While rooted in jazz, The Wee Trio finds ways to break boundaries encompassing their other roots in rock and fusion. Each member is a leader in their own right, but together as The Wee Trio represents the highly creative groups pushing jazz and improvised music in exciting and innovative directions.
