Live Jazz Series at Mitchell's ft. The Kym Purling Trio

Published by Rich Van Voorst at 5:57 AM

Mitchell's Fish Market will begin a 5 weeks summer live jazz series starting June 11. The series will run every Thursday night and will feature the always incredible Kym Purling and his trio with Alejandro Arenas playing bass, and Mark Feinman on the Drums. Each week will also feature guest horn players which adds a great diversity to the evening with each person adding his or her own personal sound to an already incredible group of musicians.

One of the best things about hanging out at Mitchell's with Kym is that he is always looking to his audience for requests. Kym knows way too many tunes and so the variety is unending and the evening never gets boring. On top of that, I have yet to see Kym not know a standard that a guest has requested.

Purling pours himself, body and soul, into every piece that he plays. Hey never holds back and his style is a creative fresh and modern take on the richness of the jazz standards library. Sometimes, he takes you back to the golden area of jazz where you can imagine the experience of the sights and sounds of the jazz clubs. Other times, purling takes you on a soaring adventure through the surreal sounds of a debussy'esque flight through impressionism. Moreover, it is never overbearing and always intimately directed to his listener. In other words, you always know that he is playing the piece directly for you as you sit and listen.

Kym also plays solo piano at Mitchelle's on Wednesday's from 6-10pm and Fridays and Saturday's from 6-11pm. This is some of the greatest solo piano that can be found in the Tampa Bay area and provides and even more intimate setting for a relaxing evening of great food. This combined with Mitchelle's great bar selection and very hip atmosphere makes for one of rthe best nights out in Tampa.

Where: Mitchelle's Fish Market
204 Westshore Plaza
Tampa FL, 33609

When:
Every Thursday Night Beginning June 11th
