Ben Waltzer Group
He's a teacher, journalist, and Isaac Mizrahi's pal. But all you should really care about is the way the pianist is able to conjure mystery with a feathery touch here and some graceful dissonance there. Known for the eloquence of his trio work, which updates Ellington's Piano in the Foreground approach, Waltzer's also got a nice little horn-band concept. Tonight he'll have Bill McHenry and Duane Eubanks out front; both will have plenty to chew on, because the songbook can be meaty.
