Jazz Casual is a new summer concert series showcasing an eclectic array of local and national talent. The series finale concert features the Billy Mintz Quartet ft. Tony Malaby, Roberta Piket, & Don Falzone.
“The leader walks alone and, like Paul Motian, he’s got a great way of drifting through the waves while steering the ship.” -Village Voice
A veteran of both the LA and New York jazz scenes, sought-after drummer Billy Mintz is that rare breed of jazz musician who is as comfortable playing standards in a piano trio as he is performing in the creative music scene.
Mintz's engaging compositions, ranging from stunningly melodic to rhythmically playful, reflect a mature and deeply gifted artist who has quietly been working on his craft.
He is joined by three of New York’s most respected musicians, his long-time colleagues Tony Malaby (tenor sax), Roberta Piket (piano) and Don Falzone (bass).
The quartet makes a rare New England appearance at The Dance Hall.
