The ReConception Project-Helen Sung Trio

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Add to Calendar 23-05-2014 23-05-2014 15 The ReConception Project-Helen Sung Trio "Helen Sung will convert the listener to an unabashed fan." (THE SKANNER) An award-winning classical pianist before jazz intervened "in the form of a Tommy Flanagan solo," Houston, TX, native Helen Sung went on to graduate from the prestigious Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz Performance and win the Kennedy Center's Mary Lou Williams Jazz Piano Competition. Since establishing herself in New York City, she has worked with such luminaries as Clark Terry, Ron Carter, Steve Turre, the legendary Wayne Shorter, and MacArthur Fellow Regina Carter; and, in addition to her own band, can currently be seen with fine ensembles including the Mingus Big Band & Dynasty Band, the T.S.Monk Group, and Terri Lyne Carrington's Grammy-winning Mosaic Project. With five first-rate albums to her credit, Sung's next recording, Anthem For A New Day, is her debut on Concord Records. An exciting step forward in Sung's evolution, Anthem displays a modern artistry and music that swings with a funky intellect while seamlessly integrating her jazz & classical worlds. A bright future is certainly in store for this exciting artist whom Wynton Marsalis named as one of his 'Who's Got Next: Jazz Musicians to Watch!' http://www.nymetroparents.com/2015neweventinfo.cfm?id=161217 Flushing Town Hall true DD/MM/YYYY
