Via the Culture Club blog at STLtoday: Pianist Mark Copland (pictured) is bringing his trio to St. Louis to perform on Friday, February 13 at the 560 Music Center, 560 Trinity Avenue in University City. (For those unfamiliar with the venue name, it's the former synagogue building just off the the west end of the Delmar Loop that is currently owned by Washington University but has been operated at various times in recent years by CASA, the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra and Webster University.)

Copland's extensive resume includes work with a number of prominent jazz musicians, including John Abercrombie, Randy Brecker, Bob Berg, Hank Crawford, Art Farmer, Curtis Fuller, Tom Harrell, Eddie Harris, Harold Land and Blue Mitchell, Dave Liebman, Bob Mintzer, Gary Peacock, and Sonny Stitt. The Philadelphia native, who's 60 years old, is known for his lyrical piano style and has recorded at least 18 albums as a leader. His current trio includes bassist Gary Peacock, who also plays in pianist Keith Jarrett's Standards trio, and drummer Bill Stewart.

Copland's St. Louis concert, which is is being presented by the Washington University Department of Music, starts at 8:00 p.m.. Tickets are $20 and are available online via Metrotix or by calling 314-534-1111.

You can hear Copland and Peacock together in the embedded video clip below, “Calls and Answers," which comes from a 2004 film by Julien Caume and also features pantomime Alexander Neander and actress Marianne Fabbro.
