JIM BEARD and JON HERINGTON
Jim Beard and Jon Herington will present an evening of eclectic instrumental music performed on piano and guitar. The two veterans of the acclaimed Steely Dan rhythm section have collaborated on many projects through the years in addition to each other's individual albums, including the jazz supergroup Chroma and releases by Bob Berg, Bill Evans, Michael Brecker, Randy Brecker, and many more. In addition to their long-lived contributions to Steely Dan, Jim brings his deep experience with many of the world's best modern music-makers, including Wayne Shorter, Pat Metheny, John McLaughlin, John Scofield, and Mike Stern, and Jon brings the experience of his many years as a supporting guitarist for Boz Scaggs, Madeleine Peyroux, Donald Fagen, the late Phoebe Snow, and others.
The duo will perform a collection of music that includes jazz standards, pop classics, and selected tunes from their solo recordings. Listeners can expect the unexpected and will be treated to a new approach on songs by luminaries such as Weather Report, The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Steely Dan and many more.
