Mary DiPaola’s Trio features world renowned Nat Reeves on bass. Mary and Nat have worked together for more than 25 years and along with drummer Kirk Woodard are closely linked to the Jackie McLean Institute at the Hartt School. The trio is looking forward to returning to the Piano jazz series at the Hartford Public Library and will present a variety of arranged jazz standards and original compositions of the featured performers. Mary DiPaola began her musical career at the Hartt School, where she received degrees in piano performance: jazz studies (BMus) under the direction of the legendary Jackie McLean, and music education (MMusEd) . She has been performing music throughout CT since, and has recorded twice as a bandleader ("Cat's Cradle" and "Seventh Sign"). In addition to performing Mary is an educator, having taught private piano lessons, on faculty at the Hartt School, and in East Hartford Public schools at Sunset Ridge Academy.
