Taylor Eigsti Trio returns to Woodside Priory

Pianist Taylor Eigsti and his trio return to the Woodside Priory to present a concert at 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 16, honoring the memory of jazz patron Chuck Huggins and master jazz pianist Dave Brubeck, both of whom died last year. Mr. Eigsti, 28, played for Mr. Brubeck when he was 12 years old and considered him one of his mentors.

The concert at Rothrock Performance Hall is sponsored by the Palo Alto Jazz Alliance.

A graduate of the Priory, Mr. Eigsti attended the University of Southern California for a year before launching his career in New York City. A budding composer, his first Concord CD received two Grammy nominations. He has been featured as soloist with several orchestras, led his own groups, and played with the Brubeck Brothers Band and many others. He has taught and performed at the Stanford Jazz Workshop during the past few summers.

His trio includes Eric Harland on drums and Harish Raghavan on bass, with special guest Dayna Stephens on tenor sax.

Tickets are $35 for general admission and $15 for students. To order by mail, send a self-addressed stamped envelope and check made out to Palo Alto Jazz Alliance to: Ed Fox, 294 Tennessee Lane, Palo Alto, CA 94306.
