Ethan Iverson to play solo and give master class in Minneapolis' - Dunsmore Room / Jazz Police

Bookmark and Share

Although his talents were well known much earlier, and his genius has been recognized many times over more recently, pianist Ethan Iverson will likely never shake the his image as the straight man of the internationally renowned trio, The Bad Plus. Launched in 2001 with fellow Midwesterners Reid Anderson and Dave King, TPB is one of the most readily recognized and popular jazz ensembles of the modern era, and one which still occupies a good deal of Iverson's musical energies. Yet the pianist has ong stood on his own merits as soloist, collaborator, bandleader, composer, and  even jazz blogger. Most often in the Twin Cities over the winter holidays with The Bad Plus, and recently in the company of the Billy Hart Quartet, Iverson appears in a very rare solo evening in the Dunsmore Room of Crooners Lounge on Saturday, August 20 at 7 pm. Prior to the performance (4-6 pm), Ethan will present a free Master Class.            Ethan Iverson photo    © Andrea Canter
