Uri Caine Trio

Jez Nelson presents pianist and composer Uri Caine in concert with his trio at Ronnie Scott's. Featuring John Hebert on bass and Clarence Penn on drums.

Jez Nelson presents US pianist and composer Uri Caine in concert with his trio. Caine is perhaps best known for his radical and sometimes controversial reinterpretations of classical repertoire by Mahler, Beethoven and Bach, while he is also prolific as an orchestral composer. In recent years he has performed with East-Coast musicians such as Dave Douglas and John Zorn, also devising the drum 'n' bass-inspired Bedrock Trio. In this performance, recorded at Ronnie Scott's, he returns to a more traditional piano trio format. He is joined by one of New York's most prolific bass players, John Hebert, who performs with avant-garde musicians such as Mary Halvorson as well as more straightahead groups led by the likes of pianist Fred Hersch; and drummer Clarence Penn, known for his textural approach and for appearing with, among others, French saxophonist Richard Galliano and bass player Charlie Haden.

Presenter: Jez Nelson
Producer: Peggy Sutton.
