Piano Jazz Series: Leo Genovese

March 26 @ 8:30 pm - 9:45 pm

Leo Genovese

Genovese’s approach favours subtly and nuance via angular harmonic structures and probing solos seeking out distinctive harmonic terrain. There’s plenty of fire too… —JazzWise

Acclaimed jazz pianist Leo Genovese brings his trio to the Zinc for a splendid evening of jazz piano on Tuesday, March 26. He’s supported by Gene Perla on bass and Jimmy Macbride on drums.

Born in 1979 in Venado Tuerto, Argentina, Leonardo Genovese pursued classical piano studies at the National University of Rosario and took private lessons in contemporary music. In 2001, he left for Boston, where he began his musical journey at Berklee College of Music, studying under prominent artists such as Danilo Perez, Joanne Brackeen, and Frank Carlberg. Leo graduated with a Professional Music Major degree in 2003 and has since collaborated with notable musicians, including Hal Crook, Darren Barrett, George Garzone, Francisco Mela, Joe Lovano, Bob Gulloti, Phil Grenadier, Dave Santoro, Chris Cheek, Michael Janisch, and Ben Monder. His debut solo album, “Haikus II,” was published by Spanish label Fresh Sound Records in 2004. Currently based in New York, Leo regularly performs with the Esperanza Spalding Group, the Mike Tucker Quartet, Planet Safety (with Bob Gullotti and Dave Zinno), the Wayne Shorter Group, and Jack DeJohnette.

Besides touring with Spalding, Leo also plays with a loosely assembled group called the Chromatic Gauchos, whose core members are Bob Gulloti, Dan Blake, and John Lockwood. This group, together with Spalding and percussionist Sergio Miranda, plays an important role on “Seeds.” Although Leo is early in his career, he hopes that his music can be more than just entertainment, but also a force for positive change in a world facing economic, social, and political challenges. “I want my music to be something worthwhile and helpful to people,” he says. “There are so many people in the world who are in need. I hope to raise awareness of the different circumstances that people face every day, and to inspire people to take positive action. Good intentions can make all the difference, and music is no exception. If it comes from a good place, it can bear good fruit.”

Showtimes are at 7:00 pm & 8:30 pm. Get your tickets now, available for $30 in advance or $35 at the door. Don’t miss out on this magical evening of jazz piano! For more info, visit
