Ehud Asherie LIVE at Roxy Bar
Friday, June 09, 2023 - June 10, 2023, 6pm - 8pm
Largely self-taught, or rather, "old-schooled," pianist Ehud Asherie spent much of his early teens becoming a fixture of the late-night jam sessions in Greenwich Village clubs. Mentored by the late Frank Hewitt, Asherie began to develop "his virtuosity and his ear for clean, crisp lines" (The Star-Ledger). Later, an admiration for earlier piano styles took hold; soon enough Asherie had absorbed them into his playing becoming, in the words of The New Yorker, "A master of swing and stride." His present style combines this broad tradition, merging idioms into a distinctly personalized approach.
