JAZZ | Johnny O'Neal Trio

by

comment

If you have any doubts about the piano prowess of Johnny O'Neal just consider one fact: Out of all the excellent pianists in the world, he was selected to simulate the great Art Tatum in the 2004 film "Ray." O'Neal had already paid his dues playing with Clark Terry, Dizzy Gillespie, and Ray Brown, not to mention Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers. When O'Neal and his trio play the opening shows of the revived Exodus to Jazz series, you can bet he will also display his considerable vocal talent. At the Penthouse, O'Neal will be joined by Ben Rubens on bass and Itay Morchi on drums.

The Johnny O'Neal Trio plays Saturday, February 17, at The Penthouse at One East Avenue. 7:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. $20-$35 ($15-$30 in advance). exodustojazz.com; mrjohnnyoneal.com.
