||The piano trio is one of the "primary numbers" in the world of Jazz. Historically, there have been thousands if not tens of thousands of piano-bass-drums combinations that have graced the stage. We're pleased to have the opportunity to present pianist Tamir Hendleman, who makes his first Jazz Series appearance. A mainstay within drummer Jeff Hamilton's Trio, Hendleman also serves as Barbra Streisand's musical director. These two high-profile gigs give him more than enough credentials playing in a supporting role, however it's his work as a leader that allows him to shine most brightly. Stylistically, we're talking "in the pocket" - shades of Oscar Peterson, shades of Peterson's mentor, Benny Green.
