MADELEINE PEYROUX TRIO ON TOUR
Jim Beard and Jon Herington will present an evening of eclectic instrumental music performed on piano and guitar. The two veterans of the acclaimed Steely Dan rhythm section have collaborated on many projects through the years in addition to each other's individual albums, including the jazz supergroup Chroma and releases by Bill Evans, Michael Brecker, Randy Brecker, and more. In addition to their longstanding contributions to Steely Dan, Jim brings his deep experience with a long list of the world's best modern music-makers, including Wayne Shorter, Pat Metheny, John McLaughlin, John Scofield, and Mike Stern, and Jon brings the experience of his many years as a supporting guitarist for Boz Scaggs, Madeleine Peyroux, Donald Fagen, Bette Midler, the late Phoebe Snow, and others.
The duo will perform a collection of music that includes jazz standards, pop classics, and selected tunes from their own releases. Listeners can expect the unexpected and will be treated to fresh approaches to songs by luminaries such as Weather Report, The Beatles, The Beach Boys, and Steely Dan.
STEELY DAN's yearly residencies in New York City are now the stuff of legend — and the west coast faithful always had to cross a continent to join in on the multi-night fun.
That's about to change: In 2017, Steely Dan founders Donald Fagen and Walter Becker will play a nine-night Steely Dan residency at the Opaline Theatre at The Venetian ® in Las Vegas, Nevada between April 12 - April 29.
Donald and Walter are again supported by "the best touring band on the stage today": Jon Herington (guitar), Keith Carlock (drums), Freddie Washington (bass), Jim Beard (keyboards), Roger Rosenberg, Walt Weiskopf, Michael Leonhart , Jim Pugh (horns) and Carolyn Leonhart, Cindy Mizelle, and La Tanya Hall (backing vocals). Critics and fans now rightly evoke the legendary Big Bands of a previous era as the only apt comparison for the virtuosity, versatility, and vise-like cohesion of this Steely Dan musical collective.
These master musicians will treat audiences each night to a diverse set of classics, drawn from Steely Dan's extraordinary catalog of infectious tunes, bodacious harmonies, irresistible grooves, and, of course, those sleek, subversive lyrics.
