Warren will be premiering new work with the help of world-renowned Trumpet & Electronics Diva, Saskia Laroo along with Sinan Bakir, George Mastrogiannis, and possibly a rapper to be determined. They will feature selections from his upcoming sampler EP, February Music, and a musical tribute to master poet-wordsmith John Farris.
Warren Byrd, native of Hartford, CT, is a pianist/vocalist/composer whose music could be called indescribable, except for the fact that, ‘He sounds like a lot of jazz pianists we’ve all dug’…Well, surely some cliches describe him well enough: ‘Drawing on his roots to build new sounds’, ‘Original in ways that relate in ways to how everyone relates’, ‘Moving “outward” toward the “Core”‘, Blah, blah, etc. The truth of the matter is in the pudding: As an American with a heritage rooted in the fertile soil of Black creativity, he explores the universal ideals that connect us all seeking unity in music…he just so happens to really dig Jazz as his main musical springboard.
