History of the Ensemble
Kelly Green (piano/voice), Evan Hyde (drums) & Luca Soul (bass) have played as a trio extensively all over NYC and the tri-state-area. They perform uniquely stylized arrangements of songs from the Great American Songbook and the Jazz canon as well as Miss Green’s original compositions.
The Kelly Green Trio has performed several runs in San Francisco , toured the east coast of the US and Europe, filled Birdland Theater, sold out Mezzrow Jazz Club, hosted a week at Dizzy's, performed and taught masterclasses at York College and in Colombia, and performed at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts as part of the DC Jazz Festival honoring the centennial of Nat King Cole, and much more. They released their debut album as a group, Kelly Green Trio “Volume One” (Dec 5, 2018) which was placed on top 10 lists in All About Jazz, Jazziz, and the NYC Jazz Record, and is currently playing on radio stations around the world including WUCF, XM Radio, WBGO, and many others.
New album to be recorded on March 9th at Bunker Studio!
Miss Green and Luca met Elijah at a session curated by Reggie Workman in 2021 and began collaborating shortly after. They now have special repertoire that includes Elijah on piccolo, flute, and alto flute with the Kelly Green Trio.
