HCC/Ybor Performing Arts Series Presents
|THE MICHAEL ROYAL TRIO
Michael Royal - Piano
Richard Drexler - Bass
Marty Morell - Drums
Sunday, February 21, at 3:00
The Tampa Jazz Club is proud to present an afternoon of Jazz and
Great American Songbook standards by three of Florida’s most
renowned musicians, when the MICHAEL ROYAL TRIO,
featuring RICHARD DREXLER and MARTY MORELL performs on Sunday,
February 21 at 3:00. The concert, part of the HCC Visual & Performing Arts
Series, takes place in the Mainstage Theatre, at HCC/Ybor City.
The members of this trio share deep experience in the jazz world,
sharing the stage internationally with the greatest performers.
Tampa native MICHAEL ROYAL is a hard-driving pianist deeply
rooted in the jazz tradition, while having a sensitive and sophisticated
touch that reflects his classical training. He has appeared with Ira Sullivan,
Mel Lewis, Mark Murphy, and John Lamb among many others.
Both RICHARD DREXLER and MARTY MORELL are faculty members
at the University of Central Florida in Orlando, and members of
The Jazz Professors, who have been heard widely on jazz radio
coast to coast. Richard Drexler, whose compositions include
chamber and symphonic works along with dozens of jazz pieces,
has for years been in high demand throughout the Florida jazz scene,
playing both bass and piano. And Marty Morell, a brilliant
all-around percussionist, was the drummer for the famed
Bill Evans Trio from 1968-74. In addition to teaching at UCF,
he currently leads an exciting Latin Jazz Ensemble with his wife, Michiko.
It’s a rare thing for these three musicians - all long-time favorites of Tampa
Jazz Club audiences – to come together. Don’t miss the chance to join them
for an afternoon of bebop, ballads, and blues in a beautiful setting in Ybor City!
