Trio MOV presents A Celebration of Bill Evans at the Jazz Station in Eugene

  • David Morgenroth piano
  • Chris Orsinger bass
  • Jay Veach drums

Tonight, Trio MOV (Morgenroth - Orsinger - Veach) offers another installment in its ongoing exploration of the great jazz piano trio tradition with a deep dive into the music of Bill Evans. Known for his unique pianism and groundbreaking trio concepts, Evans was also a prolific composer and an insightful arranger. This evening’s repertoire will feature many of Evans’ compositions as well as his distinctive versions of standard tunes, such as Irving Berlin’s “How Deep Is the Ocean,” Jerome Kern’s “Up with the Lark,” Richard Rodgers’ “Spring Is Here,” and Henry Mancini’s “The Days of Wine and Roses.”

David Morgenroth “provides evidence of a style shaped by intelligence, clarity of conception, and even an elegance that shimmers,” writes Bill Donaldson of Jazz News. “He possesses both invention and originality of sound in abundance.” Morgenroth has performed across the United States, Europe, Asia, and South America with such luminaries as Micheal Brecker, Buddy DeFranco, Benny Golson, Lionel Hampton, Freddie Hubbard, Gary Peacock, Toots Thielemans, and Joe Williams. David has released four recordings under his own name, collaborating with notables like Chris Potter and Bob Sheppard (saxophones), Drew Gress and Chris Colangelo (bass), and Joe LaBarbera (drums).

Veteran bassist Chris Orsinger, one of the Jazz Station’s co-founders, is known for his harmonic voice while creating a foundation of groove from deep within his core. He has performed in numerous jazz, soul, and funk configurations, with a variety of local and regional musicians, and he also mentors young jazz musicians.

Jay Veach is a drummer, percussionist, singer, and educator born in South Korea. Jay is the drummer in the Oregon Jazz Ensemble, as well as the Kreuger Ensemble, Impulse New Music Ensemble, Generations Wedding and Events band, and various other groups. While being an active member of the jazz scene, he also teaches private drum lessons and sectionals at local middle and high schools. Jay is currently completing his undergraduate degree at the University of Oregon.
