TEJ Trio: Taylor Eigsti, Eric Harland & Julian Lage at SFJAZZ Center, Miner Auditorium As the most sought after drummer of his generation, Eric Harland can pick and choose gigs with care. The fact that hes performed widely in trios led by both pianist Taylor Eigsti and guitarist Julian Lage speaks to his boundless esteem for his peers. A musician of protean power and sublime taste, Harland turns every performance into a revelatory journey, and hes in perfect company with Lage and Eigsti, who have played together since they were audaciously precocious adolescents on the Bay Area scene. The TEJ Trio provides both players with a larger sonic palette than usual, with Eigsti doubling on keyboards and Lage adding an array of effects to his warm and taut guitar tone. As a member of the SFJAZZ Collective from 2005-12, Harland has become a regular presence on the Bay Area scene. In recent years hes made memorable appearances with Zakir Hussain, Charles Lloyd, Dave Holland's Prism, and the collective quartet James Farm with Joshua Redman, Aaron Parks, and SFJAZZ Collective bassist Matt Penman. The TEJ Trio is a step into the unknown, a vehicle for searching out unheard textures, extended forms and mysterious harmonies.Artist PersonnelTaylor Eigsti keyboard Julian Lage guitarEric Harland drumsArtist Websiteiharland.com"He (Eric Harland) is setting the rhythm of jazzs future.
