Friday 4/22/22 8- 10 pm & Saturday 4/23/22 10 am- 10 pm
FOR ALL MUSIC LOVERS, not just pianists, interested in both the practical and spiritual aspects of jazz and improvised music.
Together we will hear six brilliant pianists perform & discuss their relationship to music, to the jazz lineage, to structure and to freedom.
Featuring Sullivan Fortner, Benny Green, Arcoiris Sanoval, Xavier Davis, Roela Oloro & Andrew Wilcox.
The piano is both a work of art & a tool for personal expression, an instrument that gives access to simultaneous harmonic, melodic and rhythmical vocabularies.
The VJC invites you to participate in a festival that showcases the myriad ways people who have invested their lives in the piano relate with the instrument and with the sounds that spring forth – with reverence, discipline and joy.
