Drumming icon, Joe La Barbera will present a night of trio music that honors the great Bill Evans, who's band Joe played in from 1978-1980. La Barbera and co-author Charles Levin have written a book about these years, aptly title "Times Remembered." This performance will also feature a live interview with the authors led by author and freind, Kirk Silsbee.

La Barbera has enjoyed a long and varied career in music, a career that has taken him all over the world with some of the finest names in jazz. He is regarded by his peers as a musical drummer and a supportive accompanist. Jazz great Bill Evans summed it up best when he said that "Joe is very dedicated to playing quality music and he's willing to make the concessions of dues toward that end. He's a top soloist and he does the right thing at the right time."
