Chicago-Based Dan Pierson Trio Plays Jazz in Urbana


Pianist Dan Pierson is one of many fine young musicians to come out of the jazz division at the University of Illinois, now making his way playing and teaching in Chicago. With a background in pop, rock and classical music, he’s formed a trio, called ROOMS, with two other Chicago-based musicians, and they’re coming to Urbana for a gig Friday night. The ROOMS Trio will play for us live on the Friday edition of “Live and Local.”
