Kevin Hays is internationally recognized as one of the premier jazz pianists of his generation. He has released over a dozen recordings as leader, and is the winner of a Charles Cros â€˜Coup de Coeurâ€™ Award. He has appeared on many â€˜best-ofâ€™ lists, and featured on Grammy-nominated and winning recordings.
In addition to working with his own groups, he has toured and recorded with many renown jazz musicians including Sonny Rollins, Joe Henderson, Roy Haynes, John Scofield, Chris Potter and Brad Mehldau.
His recent duet recording with pianist Brad Mehldau, Modern Music (Nonesuch), garnered widespread critical acclaim. The duo premiered several works from the recording at Carnegieâ€™s Zankel Hall, and has performed throughout the US and Europe.
Haysâ€™s latest project, the New Day Trio, features Hays on piano, Rob Jost on bass and French horn, and Greg Joseph on drums and percussion. The trioâ€™s upcoming recording also spotlights Haysâ€™s songwriting and vocals, and includes special guests Gregoire Maret on Harmonica and Tony Scherr on guitars. The new album will be released on Sunnyside Records in Spring 2015.
