UK pianist and composer Terry Disley marks the re-release of his "Jazzcracker" CD this season by presenting his exciting all-star group in a series of December concerts.
Performance Showcase 2009 is thrilled to host the first concert of the season, featuring Disley at the Steinway piano, synthesizer, and the unique St. Aidan's pipe organ. The Jazzcracker showcases Disley's original jazz arrangements of Tchaikovsky's ever-popular Nutcracker Suite.
The concert will also feature Disley performing original pieces in solo and group settings, including a debut performance of selections from his classical CD "Nocturnes."
Disley has played with Acoustic Alchemy (two Grammy nominations), Sir Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Sir Mick Jagger, Bryan Ferry, Van Morrison, Madness, Terry Hall (Specials), Billy Bragg, Tom Jones, Eddie Henderson, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Candy Dulfer, Cecile Payne and Urbie Green, and for five years was Musical Director for Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics.
