A seasoned veteran of the road and the recording studio, pianist & composer Andy LaVerne has enjoyed a long and varied musical career, playing and recording with Stan Getz, Elvin Jones, Chick Corea, Mike Brecker, John Abercrombie, among many others.
A prolific recording artist, composer, and author, LaVerne has close to sixty recordings as a leader, and is featured on dozens more as a sideman.
Since his formative years as a young student at the Juilliard School, and then as a private student of legendary jazz pianist Bill Evans, Andy has shared his talents and knowledge with a large number of aspiring musicians at colleges and universities worldwide, including his students at The Hartt School (University of Hartford). His instructional DVD’s have helped thousands more in their ongoing studies of jazz piano.
LaVerne (piano), Charette (organ), and Pinciotti (drums) form a One of a Kind Trio, one that has a rich and colorful sonic palette, which has the impact of a quartet, and the intimacy of a trio. The group’s repertoire, a blend of reworked standards and fresh originals, continues to expand.
