Denise Kidder/Peter Barshay/Ben Stolorow
Riggers' Loft/R&B Cellars, 1325 Canal Boulevard, Richmond
We'll be swinging jazz gems as a trio. Top-flight bassist Peter Barshay brings a wealth of experiences to his performance. He has performed players including Milt Jackson, Freddie Hubbard, Woody Shaw, Joe Henderson and Joe Lovano. His debut as a leader with Pit of Fashion, featured his plucked wah-wah bass vibrating throughout. He has soaked up a lifetime of sounds on both coasts -- everything from salsa and straight ahead to funk-fusion, avant garde and music derived from the Afro-Cuban and Brazilian traditions. Ben Stolorow, a Hertz Traveling Fellow studied in New York with pianists Stanley Cowell, James Williams and Fred Hersch. One can hear his lyrical sensitivity influenced by Bach and Bill Evans to Thelonious Monk and McCoy Tyner. He has performed at Yoshi’s, Kuumbwa Jazz Center, at the Healdsburg and SF Jazz Festivals, and has also toured and performed throughout Japan. Ben is also a faculty member of the California Jazz Conservatory.
