New York City-based jazz pianist and composer Leslie Pintchik will bring Scott Hardy on bass and Michael Sarin on drums to play originals and standards. Her trio performs regularly at New York City jazz venues that include the Kitano, Smalls Jazz Club, Bar Next Door, the Blue Note, Knickerbocker, and 55 Bar. Most recently, they performed as part of the JVC Jazz Festival at the Kitano Hotel in Manhattan, at Scullers (Boston’s premiere jazz club), the Side Door in Old Lyme Connecticut, and a Texas tour that included venues in Houston, Austin and Dallas. Pintchik has just finished recording a new CD (tentatively titled True North), scheduled for release in early 2016. The Tusten concert will include some of the material from this new recording.
