Pianist Sacha Perry is widely known among musicians in New York as one of the brightest pianists on the scene. He studied with Barry Harris and quickly excelled in ability at the most difficult and subtle harmonies. He has been playing at Smalls for eight years, appearing with Across 7th Street, the Chris Byars Octet, Mike Mullins, Zaid Nasser, Grant Stewart, and fronting his own trio. Sacha is one of the world's foremost experts on the music of Elmo Hope, Bud Powell, and Thelonious Monk, and counts them, along with the late pianist Frank Hewitt, as his influences.
