Masters of improvisation

Having been part of cutting-edge jazz since the 1960s—when they honed their musical skills alongside such legends as John Coltrane and Cecil Taylor—the eminent improvisers of Trio 3 continue to stay sharp and at the forefront of the movement. As elder masters of their individual instruments and as composers, saxophonist Oliver Lake, bassist Reggie Workman, and drummer Andrew Cyrille strike a unique balance; “a group where music is the leader” has long been their guiding principle. Trio 3’s recent recordings have aligned the group with the next generation of greats, including the widely celebrated pianist Vijay Iyer. Iyer, a MacArthur “Genius” who The New Yorker deems “extravagantly gifted” and “[one of] today’s most important pianists,” joins the group for this landmark Festival concert.

Ticket prices range from $25 to $60.
