KCC Productions presents the Antonio Madruga Trio
Zinc Bar, 82 W 3, NYC; Dec 17, from 8-11 PM.
At just 20 years old, Antonio Madruga dominates the piano like he has been playing in dusty honky-tonks for decades. A true jazz piano prodigy, he has been featured in Wynton Marsalis' YoungArts Master Class (HBO), and Marsalis chose him as one of the “Who’s Got Next” new generation of upcoming jazz artists. In 2009, at the age of 16, he shared the stage with Paquito D’Rivera and Wynton Marsalis at the White House performing for the Obamas. Bassist Russell Hall performed professionally with several of South Florida's esteemed musicians while still in high school and was recently named by Wynton Marsalis as one of the future jazz greats. He is currently on a full scholarship at Juilliard. Drummer Lawrence Leathers has performed with many top jazz artists on the scene today, including Mulgrew Miller, Cyrus Chestnut, Rodney Whitaker, Eric Reed, Vanessa Rubin, Donald Harrison, Derrick Gardner, and an extensive stint with the great trombonist Wycliffe Gordon, the Lansing Jazz Festival, Vail Jazz Party, and the Detroit Ford International Jazz Festival.
