Fine & Mellow: Helen Sung Trio
Pianist/composer Helen Sung has spent most of her life in two distinct worlds. A classical student from a young age who transitioned to jazz in her early 20s, she understands the limitless range and potential of the piano in a way that few specialists in either genre can.
In addition, as the daughter of Chinese immigrants, Sung embodies two diverse cultures and has discovered a musical voice and identity that are true to both – and more importantly, true to herself.
With featured appearances at major jazz festivals/venues including Newport, Monterey, Detroit, SFJAZZ, and Carnegie Hall, Sung is stepping onto the international stage, including the London Jazz Festival, Taiwan’s Taichung International Jazz Festivals, and tours in China, Malaysia, India, Mexico, and Uruguay.
Sung will perform as part of a trio with saxophonist Steve Wilson and bassist David Wong.
This performance is a part of Fine & Mellow, a yearlong collaboration between The National Arts Club and The National Jazz Museum in Harlem, curated by Grammy Award winner Christian McBride.
