Laffayette Gilchrist NOW Trio

Lafayette Gilchrist - piano, compositions
Herman Burney - double bass,
Eric Kennedy - drums

Pianist, composer, and bandleader extraordinaire Lafayette Gilchrist returns to the trio format on his engrossing, self-released double-disc, NOW, the follow-up to last year’s critically acclaimed solo piano album, Dark Matter, which many critics cited as one of 2019’s best jazz releases.

On NOW, Gilchrist’s first trio recording since his 2007 release 3, the pianist leads this formidable group featuring bassist Herman Burney and drummer Eric Kennedy. The three musicians have developed a deep rapport from years of playing together in other people’s bands. When the trio convened to record in November 2019, Gilchrist was bursting with creative energy. Gilchrist’s striking two-handed pianism radiates as he anchors his rugged yet sensual improvisations with stride, ragtime, and jump blues in the tradition of Earl “Fatha” Hines, Willie “The Lion” Smith, Eubie Blake, and Memphis Slim.
