New York, NY, April 30, 2004: New York based pianist Tim Lyddon and his trio featuring bassist Tom Hubbard and drummer Scott Latzky will perform a jazz concert at the Jazz Spot on Friday, June 4, 2004, 9pm-1am as part of a tour to support Mr. Lyddon’s latest release on his EssenceJazz label, Shades Of People. His compelling and distinctive style engages a sensibility of enormous breadth, encompassing the classic American song form, and the harmonic innovations of the post-bop era, offering "..a light touch that allows for a certain resonance, meaning that his lines - often little snippets of pure melody - are flecked with intrigue." (Macnie) Village Voice. Mr. Lyddon has performed and toured with jazz artists such as flutist Sam Most, the Dick Berk Quartet, Chuck Flores Quintet, bassist Jeff Berlin, vocalist Herb Jeffries and drummer Eliot Zigmund. " the trio has come together as one entity which reveals how dynamic an entity can be." Dan Karcher, WBGO-FM (Jazz 88) "Lyddon’s "I’ve Traveled So Far" is a quiet gem, one that impresses more and more with each hearing." - Larry Nai (ejazznews) "With an engaging light as a feather, block-chord touch, pianist Tim Lyddon spins out original and standard compositions in the piano trio format. Even in a congested market, Lyddon makes a strong case for his rendering of the piano trio." Michael Bailey (All About Jazz). "Taken as a whole, this music is saturated with art, dignity and good fun. You won’t be let down here, jazz is alive and well."- Stephen Koch (All About Jazz). The concert performance will feature selections from both of his CDs as well as original compositions and arrangements of several jazz standards. There is no cover charge. Both CD releases are available for purchase on the Web at towerrecords.com, Cd Baby, amazon.com, ejazzlines.com, and on Mr. Lyddon’s website, www.pianojazz.net.
