Joey Pero and His Band
October 16, New York?s Feinstein's at the Loews Regency ? a celebrated mecca for outstanding music performance - will host world-renown trumpeter Joey Pero and his high-energy ensemble performing selections from his recently released, critically-acclaimed CD, ?Resonance.?
"This is a very special treat for the band and I to bring ?Resonance? from the studio to a live concert audience,? stated Pero, one of the trumpet world?s fastest-rising star performers. ?We want to deliver the unique energy and excitement that 'Resonance' is to Feinstein's wonderful audience,? he added.
Pero?s CD, ?Resonance? launched earlier this summer to rave media reviews. Throughout the CD, Pero displays virtuosity that puts him in an elite category, being compared by critics to trumpet greats such as Wynton Marsalis, Allen Vizzutti, and the late, great jazz trumpeter, Maynard Ferguson - in whose Big Bop Noveau Band Pero spent time touring and sharpening his awesome ?chops.? Allaboutjazz.com listed ?Resonance? as one of their highest recommended CDs this year and called "Resonance": "Incredible, Fascinating, and Tremendous... Pero is a supreme master of the instrument in both Jazz and classical disciplines, an achievement of grand (and near impossible) proportions."
?Resonance? Producer Charles Ressler stated in a recent interview: ?Resonance? displays modern jazz and virtuoso musical creativity at its absolute finest.? ?Joey Pero has only the brightest of futures ahead of him ? and, as great and talented as they are, there are aspects of Joey?s playing that Chris Botti and even the great Wynton Marsalis ? Pero?s musical mentor - would envy!? Ressler hailed.
Joey Pero and his ensemble consisting of pianist Jon Ware, bassist Jeff Little, drummer Pete Abazia, and accompanied by epic marimba player, Simon Boyar (who produced ?Wicked?s? ?Defying Gravity? for ?Resonance,? and Brubeck's "Blue Rondo") will perform one show Feinstein's at the Loews Regency on October 16.
