Scott Tixier and Walter Kemp 3OH @ BOP STOP

December 13 from 8:00pm - 11:00pm

Scott Tixier and Walter Kemp 3OH @ BOP STOP

Sunnyside recording artist Scott Tixier is one of his generation’s extraordinary talents, having made a name for himself as a violinist-composer of wide-ranging ambition, individuality and drive — “the future of jazz violin” in the words of Downbeat Magazine, and “A remarkable improviser and a cunning jazz composer” in those of NPR. The New York City-based Tixier, was born in Montreuil, France and has performed with some of the leading lights and legends in music.

Tixier studied classical violin at the conservatory in Paris. Following that, he studied improvisation as a self-educated jazz musician. He has been living in New York for over a decade where he performed and recorded with a wide range of artists, including, Stevie Wonder, Roger Waters, Kenny Barron, John Legend, Ed Sheeran, Charnett Moffett, Cassandra Wilson, Chris Potter, Christina Aguilera, Common, Anthony Braxton, Joss Stone, Gladys Knight, Natalie Cole, Ariana Grande, Wayne Brady, Gerald Cleaver, Tigran Hamasyan and many others.

The “Rising Star” violinist (Downbeat Magazine) will be joined by Blujazz artist Walter Kemp 3, and the "Walter Kemp 3oh!." Walter’s father, a Carnegie Hall composer, sparked Walter's early interest in the piano. This internationally recognized ensemble, including powerful piano, mind-blowing percussion, rhythmic vocals and “punchy bass” dominates in an array of venues.

The 3oh!’s debut release, Dark Continent, brings Kemp’s innate abilities to the forefront. Having joined forces with long-time musical collaborators, RiShon Odel Northington, recording and touring bassist for GRAMMY-nominated Najee, and percussive phenom David “Teaspoon” Hulett, the trio "swings with excitement... anything but the expected piano trio." (George W. Harris, LA Jazz Weekly) As featured artists on Toronto’s Jazz FM 91.1, and with a live performance heralded as “the best...incredibly beautiful music,” this is just the beginning for these promising young artists.

This quartet promises an unforgettable evening.
