Joe Davidian

Joe Davidian is a pianist of the highest caliber. His sense of swing, rhythmic interest and melodic interpretation rank him among the greatest jazz pianists of the day. Bill Barton of Seven Days writes, “Young pianist Joe Davidian…is already developing a reputation as one of the most promising new talents.” And of the Joe Davidian Trio, A.C. Hutchinson of The Times Argus writes, “It’s difficult to imagine a trio, famous or obscure, old or young, that sounds better…” The trio performs jazz standards as well as originals composed by all band members, shadowing the trio models of pianists Bill Evans, Keith Jarrett and Oscar Peterson. Joe comments, “My concept for the group is to promote the highest level of interaction through attentive listening in every moment. No single trio member should contribute more than one-third to the musical whole.” JD3 sets itself apart from other trios by focusing on space, swing and melodic integrity.
