In piano man


Joey Calderazzo is the epitome of the modern jazz pianist. With technical nuance that bears classical flight, almost Chopinesque actually, he manages to rattle his playing with Monk injected soul in the Branford Marsalis Quartet and solo outings. Last years' Haiku found him reworking Nick Drake alongside Radiohead and his own originals. Though on Love Supreme, Marsalis' master Coltrane cover, Calderazzo perfectly adapts McCoy Tyner's fluid calls. Now a Triangle resident he will play the Owen G Kenan Benefit for pancreatic cancer research at the ArtsCenter in Carrboro. He's joined by Duke jazz leader John Brown on bass and drummer Russell Lacy. The show is Thursday, April 28 at 8 p.m.
