“Micah Thomas, an energetic and ambidextrous pianist known for his work in the saxophonist Immanuel Wilkins’s quartet, was bound to make a big statement of his own. Still, the pianist’s third LP arrives with characteristic modesty: an acoustic trio record on which he often turns up the action without raising the volume. Actually, when the rhythm section (Dean Torrey on bass and Kayvon Gordon on drums) escalates, Thomas seems most inclined to pull back.”

New York Times, Best Jazz Albums of 2023

“I am already tagging him as one who has a unique style as well as all the tools needed to make a major contribution to the world of jazz piano.”

Fred Hersch

What’s a jazz trio to you?  According to Micah Thomas, it’s much more than piano, bass and drums; it’s a departure point from which the depths of the human experience may be sounded.  The jazz trio may reveal, in other words, something special that we’re not yet paying attention to.  His newest album draws on experiences musical and extra-musical, both common - like an homage to his little sister’s first step into adulthood – and the extraordinary – such as a meditation on The Washing of the Saint’s Feet.  Come welcome Micah to Vienna Live and let’s get to know his newest album, Reveal!
