Union Square Live 2018
With amazing chops, quiet soul, diverse compositions, and a somewhat twisted sense of humor, this trio, hailed as “the world’s most sophisticated jam-band,” features three top virtuosos on their respective instruments.
As individual players, Michael Manring, Larry Kassin, and John R. Burr have all carved out extensive, multi-faceted careers exploring a vast array of musical styles. Together this triumvirate creates intriguingly uncategorizable music that blithely ignores stylistic divisions hemming in jazz, rock, folk, avant-garde, and world music. An unsurpassed master of the electric bass, Manring has collaborated with some of the world’s most esteemed improvisers. Kassin is a tremendously resourceful jazz/improv flutist, and Burr is a rollicking pianist whose command of jazz, blues and pop idioms often make him the accompanist of choice for top jazz vocalists and singer/
songwriters. Together this collective trio hones extemporaneous-jazz-chamber-fusion -music for today’s ears.
