“An expressive instrumentalist, Cherry has a hip, melodic approach that is a refreshing contrast to guitarists who frequently resort to playing ‘finger music’, the execution of rapid streams of notes that serve no musical purpose other than to fill space.”
Acclaimed jazz guitarist Ed Cherry brings his formidable trio to Zinc jazz club on Monday, June 11. He’s supported by organist Kyle Koehler and drummer Jason Tieman.
Guitarist Ed Cherry has been playing professionally since the early ’70s, as a sideman to musicians such as Tim Hardin, Jimmy McGriff, Henry Threadgill and Jimmy Smith. Most famously, he spent over fifteen years in Dizzy Gillespie’s band, remaining with the group until the trumpeter’s death in 1993.
