Ben Powell

 Boston, Massachusetts, USA

A brilliant young jazz violinist, Ben Powell has absorbed much of the sound and approach of the great Stephane Grappelli and combined it with his own deep musicianship and contemporary attitude to produce jazz violin playing that is both technically scintillating and musically gratifying.


The Ben Powell Trio is proud to present the distinct combination of jazz violin, B3 organ, and drums. The Ben Powell Trio presents the traditional with the new, performing standards mixed with original compositions, all delivered with the elegance and grace that is so distinctive of the Grappelli style.

Members of the trio have performed at the Kennedy Center and Blues Alley Washington D.C, New York Iridium, Purcell Rooms Southbank Complex London, Jazz a Vienne Festival, Festival de la Defense Paris and Shanghai Jazz Festival to name a few. Members have performed with Terri Lyne Carrington, Joe Lovano, Philip Bailey, Stevie Winwood, and Paul Simon.

The pedagogical experience of trio members includes masterclasses and workshops in Washington D.C, Louiville Kentucky, Houston Texas, Los Angeles California, Shanghai China and Mexico City to name a few. Members of the band have also featured in pedagogical books.
