The Julian Hartwell Trio at Steel City Coffeehouse
The Julian Hartwell Trio makes their debut at Steel City Coffeehouse this August! A great chance to experience the trio in an intimate setting, this performance will premier some new compositions and fresh arrangements that allow the trio to shine in an improvisatory, conversational context. Talented area pianist Joe Kenney and his 5 piece band will open up the evening.
The Julian Hartwell Trio or “JHT” is a versatile piano trio that performs original repertoire in the vein of modern jazz, funk, hip-hop and fusion. While predominantly the vehicle for exploring pianist Julian Hartwell's original music, they also draw on the wide spectrum of influences behind each member’s musical background. As a unit they can dabble in everything from backbeat-heavy hip-hop grooves, choice pop and RnB covers, time-worn jazz standards, and edgy modern jazz heads. A blend of electric and acoustic instrumentation allows for a cross-breeding of sound that lends a fresh approach to the concept of ‘piano trio’…making this outfit ideal for everything from tasteful background music at formal events...in-your-face creative interplay..backing-band for guest vocalists, MC’s, jam sessions, and more.
