Joshua White Trio at Dizzy's Oct. 25

How has life changed for Thelonious Monk Piano Competition finalist (second place), Joshua White, who brings a trio into Dizzy's on Oct. 25 ?

"It was definitely a great experience, and I've received a lot of opportunities to explore different avenues, whether it's meeting new people, or opportunities to play with my own band, exploring my own music and arrangements. But I will say, that the hard work doesn't stop, you have to continue to move forward, and if you want to make anything happen--you have to do it yourself," said White.

White will be accompanied by two musicians that he met playing in Los Angeles: drummer Dan Schnelle, and bassist J.P. Maramba. Schnelle is a new name to me, but catching Maramba with White's quartet a few months back was a revelatory experience.

Maramba chooses the path less traveled. He has drawn a certain amount of inspiration from the legendary Charlie Haden, who is the epitome of "less-is-more." Like Haden, Maramba lets each note breathe--consequently, his solos move into a more reflective direction.

White is already a master at listening and responding in the moment to whoever he shares the stage with. Even though he's developed phenomenal technique, White is more about engaging in a musical conversation that responds to the individuals at hand, both on the bandstand, and in the audience.

"It's not just about us [musicians], in my opinion, it's like the music is only found within that dialogue, those open lines of communication--between the musicians and the active listening audience. I mean, everyone's involved in that environment," he added.

Anyone who has caught White in the last few years can testify to his astonishing facility and ability to blend his talents with whomever he's playing. He sounds completely comfortable and authentic, whether it's in a be-bop or Latin setting with trumpeter Gilbert Castellanos, on a recording session supporting vocalist Sharon DuBois, or in duet with contrabass giant Marshall Hawkins.

Bassist and bandleader Mark Dresser called White, "...a total badass young pianist...with great ears...always eager to abstract."

What are some of White's primary goals in music?

"...To ultimately, get to the music, and be able to put that out [there], and have people lend an ear, and listen, and hopefully, you spark something in them that inspires them to look at things differently," said White.

To borrow and paraphrase from an early Bill Evans record title, come to the gig at Dizzy's, and find out why "Everybody Digs Joshua White".

Concert begins at 7:30 p.m. $15 cover, $ 10 students.
