Jenny Wilson TrioSunday, October 21, 2018 @ 6 p.m. - 8 p.m.
Join us for an evening of jazz with the Jenny Wilson Trio!
Lyrical, swinging, introspective and completely engaging- the Jenny Wilson Trio plays original music and select jazz standards from the classic and modern jazz repertoire. On piano and vocals, Jenny provides the focal point for the group with support from husband and bassist Nathan Wilson. Drummer David Glover gives the band it’s groove, never overpowering the subtle texture of the trio. Jenny’s original music has been compared to that of Wayne Shorter, Thelonius Monk and Bill Evans. With hints of gospel and folk music in the mix the trio is completely and uniquely enthralling to hear.
Jenny Wilson is a composer, pianist, flutist and vocalist. Originally from Queens, New York, Jenny is a graduate of WVU’s Master of Music Jazz Pedagogy program and has toured in Switzerland, Austria and Germany. Jenny’s composing, warm vocal style and articulate piano playing have earned her a full- time career in music performance. This will be the second performance by the trio at the City of Asylum.
Bassist Nathan Wilson is Jenny’s husband and also performs with the Squonk Opera from Pittsburgh, PA. He is especially attuned to the melodic style of playing that is a key element to the group sound.
Drummer David Glover is the director of the music program at Slippery Rock University. He is a member of the Balcony Big Band and plays regularly with the Jenny Wilson Trio.
