Veteran jazz pianist Hal Galper returns with Billy Mintz (drm) and Tony Marino (bs). Their spontaneity and intuitive interaction features an ultra-modern musical approach blending a deeply swinging groove, the qualities of surprise, unpredictably, shifting textures, group improvisation and freedom.

Biography

Veteran jazz pianist Hal Galper is back. With fellow band mates Billy Mintz on drums and Tony Marino on bass, his latest trio recording, “Agents Of Change,“ is a startling departure from his previous recordings.

Disbanding his trio in 2000 after ten years of touring internationally, Hal spent the following six years “in the shed” studying, practicing and developing his uniquely original style of playing. He and his trio have fashioned and ultra-modern musical approach that embodies the qualities of surprise, unpredictably, shifting textures, group improvisation and freedom, all within the context of a deeply swinging groove. Often episodic, the trio’s “off the top of your head” spontaneity and intuitive interaction spans the lexicon of jazz history.
