Forceful and evocative, come experience the world-class, husband-and-wife musicians George and Camilla Mraz, sharing a stage with Anthony Pinciotti, a stellar drummer and percussionist, for one night only as they bring forth an expression of unique artistry of original compositions and classic standards.
This time, George will perform mostly original music. The trio will reveal an introspective and deeply intimate sound, as the musicians play off each other with the brilliance of masterful storytellers. The pensive depth of George's bass, carrying the timeworn wisdom of the instrument, compliments the lyrical, fluid and dreamlike quality of Camilla's piano, while drummer Pinciotti skillfully offers the reverberating canvas on which the two spouses share a time-tested music intimacy, reminiscent of the classic ECM sound.
In the December 2014, reviewer Russ Musto wrote, For all his work with ensembles of varying instrumentation, it is still his role as the man in the middle of many great piano trios for which he is best known." The article quotes Bill Charlap
, saying George Mraz is a master musician. He's a virtuoso in every sense of the word, yet his technical command is always in service of the music."
Having performed together in many settings with a wide palette of colors to choose from, this seasoned trio has solidified into a true musical experience of the highest caliber. All three musicians have world-class jazz credentials.
