Thursday Night Jazz at JCAL: The John Escreet Trio
October 12, 2017 @ 8:00 pm$10
Every second Thursday of each month, the Jamaica Center for Arts & Learning transforms its community gallery into a jazz club to create an intimate setting for a concert experience. First up in the 2017-2018 series is the John Escreet Trio. Time Out London describes John Escreet as “transatlantic jazz genius.” Bursting on to the jazz scene with his 2008 debut album Consequences, Escreet quickly earned a reputation as one of the most exciting new pianist/composers to have emerged in recent years. John was a recipient of many prestigious grants and awards, such as Chamber Music America New Jazz Works, CMA/ASCAP Award for Adventurous Programming, Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation, and a commission/residency artist for the Jazz Gallery.
