Phil Markowitz

Phil at the piano Friday night. Phil Markowitz Trio

Friday, October 31 & Saturday, November 1, Tula’s Restaurant

In his 30-year career, pianist and noted jazz educator Phil Markowitz has traversed the history of jazz, from the traditional to the avant-garde, forming early relationships with Chet Baker and Toots Thielemans, as well as lasting affiliations with Dave Liebman and Bob Mintzer. A veteran of the international jazz scene, Markovitz remains committed to exploring the potential of improvisational music within the jazz idiom.
In support of his new studio album Catalysis, Markowitz here teams with his regular trio of bassist Jay Anderson (Maria Schneider Orchestra, Joe Sample, Paul Bley) and drummer Adam Nussbaum (John Scofield, James Moody, John Abercrombie).
Released earlier this year on Sunnyside records, Catalysis explores adventurous compositions ranging
from the romantic to the hard-driving and chromatic, and finds the trio in exceptional form. Featuring
unexpected compositional twists and deeply communicative improvisations, Catalysis is one of Markowitz’s finest and most unique records. And as a preview for tonight’s performance, Catalysis suggests it should be an excellent concert indeed.
