The Kenny Barron Trio, NEA Jazz Master

The Kenny Barron Trio, NEA Jazz Master

Honored by The National Endowment for the Arts as a Jazz Master, Kenny Barron has an unmatched ability to mesmerize audiences with his elegant playing, sensitive melodies and infectious rhythms.

The Los Angeles Times named him "one of the top jazz pianists in the world” and Jazz Weekly calls him “the most lyrical piano player of our time.” Following stints with Ron Carter in the late seventies, Kenny formed a trio with Buster Williams and Ben Riley, which also worked alongside of Eddie "Lockjaw” Davis, Eddie Harris, Sonny Stitt and Harry “Sweets” Edison.

Throughout the 80’s Barron collaborated with the great tenor saxophonist Stan Getz, touring with his quartet and recording several legendary albums including “Anniversary”, “Serenity” and the Grammy nominated “People Time”. Also during the 80’s, he co-founded the quartet “Sphere,” along with Buster Williams, Ben Riley and Charlie Rouse.

Kenny has earned eleven GRAMMY™ nods beginning in 1992 for Best Jazz Album with “People Time,” an outstanding duet with Stan Getz, and most recently in 2017 for Best Jazz instrumental Album. He consistently wins the jazz critics and reader’s polls, including 2016 Downbeat Critics Poll, Jazz Times and Jazziz magazines.
