On March 28th, Firehouse 12 is pleased to present pianist Kevin Hays and his New Day Trio featuring bassist Rob Jost and drummer Adam Cruz. The group's debut full length record as a trio will be released by Sunnyside Records in Fall 2014. Hays last performed at Firehouse 12 with saxophonist Donny McCaslin. This performance will be Kevin's first as a leader at Firehouse 12.

Hays's music has been called "alternately prosaic, romantic, staid, somber, unsettling, or stirring, but all of it paints Hays as a wizard of harmony and clarity" (Dan Bilawsky, All About Jazz). Hays's recording with pianist Brad Mehldau, Modern Music was called "a lyrical, harmonically dense album by two players known for their lyricism and harmonic density" (Michael J. West, Jazz Times).

Hays has released over a dozen recordings as a leader and is the winner of a Charles Cros 'Coup de Coeur' Award. He has appeared on many 'best-of' lists, and is featured on Grammy-nominated and winning recordings. In addition to his work with the New Day Trio, Hays also has a recent duet recording with pianist Brad Mehldau, Modern Music (Nonesuch) that garnered widespread critical acclaim. The duo premiered several works from the recording at Carnegie's Zankel Hall and has performed throughout the US and Europe.
