About this Event

Next up on Thursday, July 7, is Andy Milne & Unison, featuring Milne on piano, John Hébert on bass, and Clarence Penn on drums. Milne returns to the Athenaeum, having made prior appearances with Ravi Coltrane, Ralph Alessi, and his own Dapp Theory quartet. Milne has been a distinct and respected voice at the heart of New York’s creative jazz scene for 30 years, collaborating with dancers, visual artists, poets, and musicians spanning jazz, classical, pop, folk, and world music. At the piano he skillfully blends poetic gravitas with a playful sense of order. He has recorded and toured throughout the world and has collaborated with a range of artists, including Andrew Cyrille, Sekou Sundiata, Bruce Cockburn, Fred Hersch, Ben Monder, Dianne Reeves, Jen Shyu, Tyshawn Sorey and Jamie Baum. A former student of Oscar Peterson, Milne was at the center of the M-BASE Collective as a core member of saxophonist Steve Coleman’s bands, as well as performing with Cassandra Wilson and Greg Osby. With Unison, enriched with creative insights from his multiple projects, Milne returns to his first love, exploring the intimacy of the piano trio. The synchronistic relationship Milne has enjoyed with bassist Hébert since 2010 is matchlessly rounded out with drummer Clarence Penn, who represents complimentary threads within the fabric of Milne’s piano trio philosophy—the intersection of texture and groove.
