Jonny King Trio

  • Cavatappo Grill 1712 1st Avenue New York, NY, 10128 United States (map)

Jonny King has been described by Downbeat as “one of the strongest piano voices” of his generation and a “bandleader who kicks ass.” JazzTimes likewise wrote that he “represents the best of what jazz has to offer” as both a performer and composer.  A native New Yorker, he grew up in the City’s jazz clubs, participating first as a fan and then as a performer.  Before he was a teenager, King had already performed onstage with Dizzy Gillespie and appeared on television at the piano alongside his early idol, Earl “Fatha” Hines.  Before he was 20, he was already sitting in with Art Blakey and playing his first gigs in New York’s many restaurants and clubs.
