Overview

Back by popular demand, Harlem-based Emmet Cohen Trio returns to Charlotte for a Jazz Appreciation Month Kickoff Celebration at the JAZZ ROOM. 

Piano phenom, Emmet Cohen, returns to the JAZZ ROOM with his all-star trio. Known for its range and uplifting dynamism, the trio represents Cohen’s “kaleidoscopic sense of musical narrative,” as noted in Downbeat Magazine. Expect to be treated to a master class in stylistic juxtapositions, including the melding of stride, blues, church, swing, bebop, free, and contemporary styles, resulting in the innovative sound of Jazz’s future. 

Multifaceted American jazz pianist and composer Emmet Cohen is one of his generation’s pivotal artistic figures. Downbeat praised the “nimble touch, measured stride and warm harmonic vocabulary” he employs to communicate with other musicians and audiences. 

He has appeared in venues around the globe, from the Newport Jazz Festival, to the Washington DC Kennedy Center, to the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. His leadership and collaboration with artists like Ron Carter, Jimmy Cobb, George Coleman, and Jimmy Heath have led to his 4-album landmark “Masters Legacy Series” among other noteworthy albums including his latest 2021 release “Future Stride”.
