Cyrus Chestnut Trio
Sunday, December 9, 5 PM
Get in the holiday spirit with internationally renowned pianist Cyrus Chestnut's hard swinging, soulful sounds! Hear classics from his album A Charlie Brown Christmas, along with other tunes that make him "the best jazz pianist of his generation" (Time magazine). A staple in the jazz community, Chestnut blends styles that are unabashedly rooted in Gospel and touches on blues-inflected harmonies and tones of Jelly Roll Morton's ragtime and early jazz.
"The pianist Cyrus Chestnut is one of jazz's most convincing anachronisms...
What makes his music fly is a complete security in his style, and that sense
of untroubled self-assurance." - The New York Times
