Celebrating Bill Warrell’s DC Space
‘Always Ballada’ – Celebrating Jimmy Lyons

Nasar Abadey: drums
Sarah Hughes: sax
Daniel Barbiero: double-bass

Jimmy Lyons Trio performed a final concert at the renowned DC Space in 1986, the same year of his passing. Tonight, Nasar Abadey, the drummer in that trio, is joined by saxophonist Sarah Hughes, and double-bassist Daniel Barbiero.

Best known for his long tenure with pianist Cecil Taylor, Jimmy Lyons playing, influenced by Charlie Parker, kept Taylor’s avant-garde music aligned with the jazz tradition. 100% of proceeds go to the artists.
