Henry Conerway III Trio

Henry Conerway III has become a leading presence on the modern jazz scene since moving to New York. Thus illustrated by his ongoing work with such global touring artists: the iconic Freddy Cole; the stalwart Jazz at Lincoln Center (JALC) trumpeter, Marcus Printup; 2015 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Vocal Competition Winner, Jazzmeia Horn; Grammy nominated trumpeter, Russell Gunn; along with, several residencies with JALC in Doha, Qatar as well as Shanghai, China. Presently, he works as an educator, leading ensembles including the Jazz Mentors Band for Local 802 and JALC’s Jazz for Young People.

Conerway, a proud Detroit native, made extraordinary use of the many educational and cultural opportunities of that formidable city, performing as a high school student on the The Detroit Jazz Festival stages and spending several years under the tutelage of the late, great trumpeter, Marcus Belgrave, as a member of the Detroit Symphony Civic Jazz Orchestra. His thirst for the jazz idiom was nurtured by his mother, a lover of music, who made sure he experienced live performances of all types. Not to mention, his father, a brilliant classical violinist, also shared a deep and unabiding love for jazz music in all its incarnations.
