Andrew Wilcox Trio at Mr. Crab
March 27 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pmFree
The Andrew Wilcox Trio is excited to be returning to New Haven to play at Mr. Crab as part of the New Haven Jazz Underground Series.
The Andrew Wilcox Trio is a modern jazz group led by Hartford-based pianist Andrew Wilcox. Hailing from Worcester, Massachusetts originally, Andrew formed the trio with Akron, Ohio native drummer Joshua Leslie and Worcester bassist Conway Campbell Jr. during their time as students at the Hartt School of Music. The compositions they perform include a variety of obscure tunes from lesser known 70’s and 80’s jazz musicians and Andrew Wilcox’s originals. Andrew’s originals are an organic output of his time spent out in nature combined with his life experiences up to this point. The result is a combination of powerful and intense swingin grooves, in addition to wistful and spacey melodies. Andrew’s eclectic influences has pushed his music forward as he follows in the footsteps of progressive jazz musicians of the past.
