George Colligan Trio

“Premium” is Montmartre’s series of rare intimate concerts with jazz giants that you cannot normally meet on small intimate stages. These concerts are priced above the normal tickets to cover costs and travel for these heavy-weights.
George Colligan (Piano / US)Milan Nikolic (Bass / RS)Dejan Terzic (Drums / DE)

George Colligan is a New York based pianist, organist, drummer, trumpeter, teacher, and bandleader, who is one of the most original and compelling jazz artists of his generation. An award-winning composer (Chamber Music America/Doris Duke Foundation grant recipient) and player, Colligan is highly in demand as a sideman, having worked with players like Cassandra Wilson, Don Byron, Buster Williams, and Lonnie Plaxico, both on the bandstand and in recording sessions (appearing on over 100 CDs). Colligan plays modern jazz with the greats, from Phil Woods to Nicholas Payton. Despite his originality, he never loses touch with his audience and he has been called ?One of the best kept secrets in jazz?? by Chris Hoven, All About Jazz. Joining Colligan on stage this evening is Milan Nikolic on the bass and Dejan Terzic behind the drums.
