Joelle and the Pinehurst Trio came together in 2009 when the members of this classic quartet all lived on Pinehurst Avenue in Northern Manhattan. They quickly realized that their unique chemistry on and off the bandstand was something to explore further. Now, this versatile ensemble has performed their distinctive brand of “jazzed up pop & popped up jazz” at Lincoln Center, Birdland, Rainbow Room, SubCulture, Zinc Bar and many other great venues in NYC and beyond. You can hear a selection of their American Songbook standards, re-imagined 80’s pop covers, and a few original tunes on Joelle Lurie’s debut album, Take Me There (iTunes/Bandcamp), which was produced and arranged by their bass player, Benjamin Gallina, and you can hear the group playing live-on-the-air on NPR’s Song Travels with Michael Feinstein. Come be charmed by the artist PopMatters claims, “…gives everything a fresh sound…an airy touch with putting pop grooves beneath old standards. Lurie is onto something here: both accessible and a little different.” For more information, check out www.pinehurstmusic.com and www.joellelurie.com.
