This is a rare opportunity to see the extraordinary Hammond B3 organ trio of Larry Goldings, Peter Bernstein, and Bill Stewart.
Celebrated in the jazz world for his membership in the collaborative Trio Beyond with John Scofield and Jack DeJohnette, Goldings has equal renown in the pop world for his work with James Taylor. Phenomenal drummer Bill Stewart made his prior Athenaeum appearances with John Scofield and pianist Kevin Hays. Guitarist Peter Bernstein has been sought out by leading players, such as Jimmy Cobb, Lou Donaldson, Sonny Rollins, Brad Mehldau, Diana Krall, and Joshua Redman. The New York Times described Goldings/Bernstein/Stewart simply as "the best organ trio of the last decade." The Financial Times wrote that the trio members “clearly relish the chance to deliver the no-nonsense grooves and subtle interplay, crisp beats and flowing solos that the organ trio form demands. The band played with the intensity and creative spark to enthrall as well as excite. Goldings and Bernstein have a seemingly telepathic sense of each other’s sounds and textures, while Stewart’s steady pulse comes with a sharp supportive chatter. As a unit, they balance a warm heart with percussive bite, and sound terrific.”
