Harlem Jazz Series - Ed Cherry Trio
"Ed is a great, soulful, swinging underrated player deserving of wider recognition." "An expressive instrumentalist, Cherry has a hip, melodic approach that is a refreshing contrast to guitarists who frequently resort to playing "finger music," the execution of rapid streams of notes that serve no musical purpose other than to fill space." Guitarist Ed Cherry has been playing professionally since the early '70s, as a sideman to musicians such as Tim Hardin, Jimmy McGriff, Henry Threadgill, and Jimmy Smith. Most famously, he spent over fifteen years in Dizzy Gillespie's band, remaining with the group until the trumpeter's death in 1993. Since then Ed has performed and recorded with a host of stellar musicians including Paquito D'Rivera, John Patton, Roy Hargrove, Hamiet Bluiett, and John Faddis to name a few. Right now, Ed is a member of vocalist Paula West quartet as well as leading his own trio. In addition to his exceptional work as a sideman and as a critically acclaimed leader, Ed Cherry also has impressive credentials as a music educator and is currently on staff at 'jazzmobile' here NYC.
