City Park Jazz: Pat Bianchi Trio | July 15

Jul 12, 2018

Two-time Grammy-nominated organist and winner of Downbeat Magazine’s 2016 rising star poll Pat Bianchi, has established himself as one of the principal organists on the scene today. His command of the instrument, harmonic prowess, rhythmic intensity, and versatility are rivaled by few. His most recent release, A Higher Standard featuring Byron Landham and Craig Ebner, exemplifies Bianchi's superiority and finesse in the organ trio setting, bringing jazz standards to a completely 'higher' level. When Pat is not leading his own trio, he performs regularly with jazz guitar icon, Pat Martino.

City Park Jazz continues on Sunday with Hammond B-3 player Pat Bianchi returning to Denver for an event that should mark the jazz-highlight of this year’s series in the Park. After Bianchi returned to the east coast after an extended time in Denver, he began a quick march up the ranks of organ masters, moving to the top of the list of rising-star players in the 2016 DownBeat “Critics Poll.” He’s a regular with both guitarist Pat Martino and alto saxophonist Lou Donaldson. Bianchi takes stage at 6pm.
