Kenny Werner is a world-class pianist and composer whose prolific output of compositions, recordings and educational publications impact as many artists as they do audiences. Werner’s compositional style makes most pieces more of a meditative journey than a concise tune, and the group members excel at creating varied, extended solos around the twists and turns of each song. Werner’s book and method Effortless Mastery are considered a definitive teaching tool for improvisers to “liberate” their musicality and avoid falling back on familiar ideas, and this group puts these ideas into practice. Formed in 2000, this trio includes Johannes Weidenmueller on bass and UNT alumnus Ari Hoenig on drums.
