"There’s no better ticket for those who want to expand their knowledge beyond Miles and Trane but are sick of paying tourist prices to do it.” —New York Magazine

Named the “Best Jazz Show” by New York Magazine, The Checkout: Live from 92YTribeca is a not-to-be-missed monthly concert series presented by 92YTribeca and WBGO Jazz 88.3 FM. Host Josh Jackson takes his broadcast music magazine The Checkout from WBGO’s airwaves to 92YTribeca’s Mainstage, giving audiences a chance to see the most exciting jazz performers on the scene today and discover the innovative musicians who are shaping its future. 

8 pm - The Bridge Trio

Conun Pappas - piano
Max Moran - bass
Joe Dyson - drums

Offbeat Magazine declares, “These three musicians are deeply connected to the roots of New Orleans music while…never shying away from taking the music in new directions… the focus is on making music as an ensemble, gracefully weaving textures over everchanging dynamics that displays a musical maturity far beyond the band’s years.”

The Bridge Trio is collectively-led by the drummer Joe Dyson, the bassist Max Moran and the pianist Conun Papas. The three musicians met in New Orleans, where they were all raised, and began working together while they were students at the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (NOCCA). It wasn’t long before the leading artists in their city started taking note. Before they were old enough to attend most clubs without supervision, Alvin Batiste granted the band its first performing opportunities at New Orleans’ Snug Harbor. Donald Harrison took the trio out of the country as his backing band before they began their first days of college, and they continue to work with him to this day. The trio’s members have also worked on stage and/or in the studio with the likes of Herlin Riley, Chico Hamilton, Victor Goines, Sean Jones and Delfeayo Marsalis, to name a few.

In 2012, the trio self released an eponymous debut album, which Offbeat describes as “a modern-jazz gem that spotlights a diverse range of original material played with soul, dynamism and musical sensibility.”

9:15 pm - Don Byron's New Gospel Quintet

Don Byron - tenor saxophone, clarinet
Carla Cook - vocals
Brad Jones - backing vocals, bass
Nat Adderley Jr. - piano
Pheeroan akLaff - drums

Clarinetist Don Byron thrives as the iconoclastic wild card of jazz, an intrepid musician who always finds exhilarating and unexpected avenues to explore. He displays a restless intelligence, interpreting a wildly diverse range of styles and artists from funk-drenched R&B to klezmer and Duke Ellington to Junior Walker. Byron’s latest project is the New Gospel Quintet, a passionate, spiritually charged tribute to gospel legend Thomas A. Dorsey and Sister Rosetta Tharpe. The recent Savoy album Love, Peace, and Soul is the result of Byron’s investigation into the blues-based sacred music of white and black Southern gospel. As on the record, Byron will be joined by a stellar group featuring the brilliant young pianist Xavier Davis, resourceful bassist Brian Jones and exploratory drummer Pheeroan akLaff — who first collaborated with Byron on 1992’s Tuskegee Experiments.

Tickets: $12 in advance / $15 day of show.
