    8-10:30pm

    61 Bergen St, Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn

    The Acoustic Electric Piano Series, curated by Brian Whiton and Big Wrench Piano present this evening of music at this hip Carroll Gardens performance space.  I'll be playing a meticulously renovated Wurli 200A electric piano that Steve and Brian at Big Wrench have fixed up.

    My trio covers a lot of musical ground, from original music to favorites from the American Songbook, jazz standards, Latin and Brazilian tunes and classic rock and R&B favorites. The unifying factor is that we play songs we truly know and love, and we creatively explore the diverse repertoire and make it undeniably jazz. I've has been playing a Wurlitzer electric piano for over 25 years and I consider the instrument a vital voice in my musical self-expression.

    Bennett Paster - Fender Rhodes
