, whose iconic montuno piano playing on the theme to “Sex and the City" assured his place in the pop culture pantheon, brings his hard-hitting power trio to 78 Below, 380 Columbus Avenue at 78th Street, on Wednesday, January 9, from 8 pm until 10 pm. Berman, whom Oscar host and Hollywood star Hugh jackman (Les Misérables) calls “a rock of creativity" (the two have performed together live both in New York and Las Vegas), will air his new trio project with fresh original tunes in a mash-up of jazz and rock with vocals, reminiscent of Bruce Hornsby

, and Ben Folds. For his latest venture, he has assembled an impressive groove trio: bassist Aiden Moore of Carney the Band and Joe Nero on drums, with Berman singing his new tunes and driving the piano.

Several notable guest artists have signed on to kick off the trio's debut, among them William Galison (arguably the best jazz harmonica player after Toots Thielemans

), who will lend his talent to Berman's new tune Toots, a soulful homage to the great Mr. Thielemans. Likely sitting in will be rockers from Carney the Band, including accomplished rock and jazz guitarist Zane Carney.

78 Below, on Manhattan's Upper West Side, is fast becoming the go-to hangout for savvy music-lovers, attracting the likes of Sheryl Crow and Amy Grant, and many rock, jazz and R&B legends.

The Mark Berman Trio project serves both as a follow-up and a diversified counterpoint to his 2007 debut release, jazz vocal masterpiece The Genesis Project.

This event is free of charge, and the venue 78 Below NYC has a full menu of food and drinks available. Guests must be over 21 years of age to purchase alcohol. Identification is required.
