Cyrus Chestnut Trio


Following the recent passing of Horace Silver, his virtuosic heir apparent is sure to pay homage to the late iconoclast’s earthy fusion of Latin jazz, funk, and gospel. The 51-year-old pianist has made a point of covering Silver throughout his career, including a consummate rendering of his standard ballad “Peace.” Chestnut’s working trio consists of bassist Dezron Douglas and drummer Neal Smith, both students of alto saxophonist Jackie McLean, a Silver collaborator, so the legacy of hard bop is in full swing for this four-day residency in an intimate, dimly lit jazz haunt reminiscent of the Five Spot and Cafe Bohemia.
