Head To Times Square For Free Jazz With Andrew Renfroe Trio

Head To Times Square For Free Jazz With Andrew Renfroe Trio

This Thursday give yourself a night with new rhythms, as you head to the train or wait for a colleague to join you for dinner. Jazz at Lincoln Center brings New York City’s hottest young jazz bands to the plaza, creating the feeling of an intimate club amidst the lights and sounds of Times Square.

This week it is the Andrew Renfroe Trio, from Jupiter, Florida, and with a Master of Music from Juilliard (2016). Andrew Renfroe credits much of his sound to his development at The Jackie McLean Institute of Jazz in Hartford, CT, where he earned his Bachelor of Music in 2013.
He has performed in the bands of Steve Davis, Nat Reeves, Javon Jackson, Terrace Martin, Mike LeDonne, and J.D. Allen. Currently, he is a member of many working groups including those led by veterans Carmen Lundy, David Weiss and Ned Goold, as well as groups led by his peers Braxton Cook, Jonathan Barber, Jonathan Pinson, Luke Sellick, Arnold Lee, and countless others. Renfroe’s own projects reflect his diverse influences and have included a re-imagining of Delta Blues legend and originator Son House’s music through the aesthetic of the John Coltrane Quartet, as well as a project which takes traditional music from Burkina Faso and Mali, West Africa and places it in a modern jazz quartet setting. Both of these projects were presented at Jazz at Lincoln Center. He is currently working on arrangements of French composer Olivier Messiaen’s Organ Works. An accomplished composer, he attended Betty Carter’s Jazz Ahead program in 2013, and is a co-writer in the group BONOMO, led by his long-time collaborator Adam Bonomo.

Thursday August 22nd from 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM TSq Plaza 43-44
