CPFJ Fal Concert Joey Calderazzo Trio - 3pm
4801 Lindle Rd.
Harrisburg, PA 17111 [map]
Price: $24 (ADULTS) $20 (CPFJ MEMBERS) $10 STUDENTS

Formerly pianist with Branford Marsalis and Mike Brecker, Joey Calderazzo has forged a great career and is now touring with his own trio.  We are proud to present him as the final Fall Concert of our 38th season.

A native of New Rochelle, New York, Calderazzo began his classical studies at age six. Improvisation came naturally even then; long before he began any formal jazz training, the young pianist was making up variations on Mozart. Fueled by his growing interest in artists like McCoy Tyner, John Coltrane, Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea, Calderazzo visited friends at Berklee College of Music, growing close with then students Branford Marsalis, Wallace Roney, and Jeff “Tain” Watts. Calderazzo earned his big break after jamming with legendary saxophonist Michael Brecker at a clinic. Brecker was impressed by the young pianist and offered him the piano chair in his quintet after Kenny Kirkland left the group in 1987. Just over ten years later, Calderazzo joined the Branford Marsalis Quartet, replacing Kirkland a second time after the pianist’s untimely passing. Calderazzo recorded three albums for Blue Note Records in the early 1990s, “In The Door”, “To Know One”, and “The Traveler”, also releasing “Secrets” on Audioquest and “Joey Calderazzo” on ColumbiA Records before signing to Branford’s Marsalis Music record label in 2002 where he released “Haiku” and “Amanecer” in 2003 and 2007 respectively. Calderazzo’s co-leader credits include 2011’s duo with Marsalis, “Songs of Mirth and Melancholy”. Joey’s Sunnyside Records debut was 2013’s “Live”, a trio recording with Le Fleming and Donald Edwards. His diverse sideman recording credits include the likes of Arturo Sandoval, Bob Mitzner, Bob Belden, Vincent Herring, Jeff ‘Tain’ Watts, and Jerry Bergonzi — as well as Marsalis and Brecker. Calderazzo currently splits his time between teaching at North Carolina Central University, working with Marsalis and company, and pushing his own trio art to new heights.

Come out and hear one of the bet modern jazz pianists and support the Central PA Friends of Jazz!!
