Bill Charlap & Wynton Marsalis

September 18 ‑ September 19

Bill Charlap – Piano

Wynton Marsalis – Trumpet


Bill Charlap has masterful technique and a stylistic range that encompasses rollicking stride piano, bebop virtuosity and harmonically opulent modernism.
The most famous musician in contemporary jazz, Wynton Marsalis made a major impact almost from the start. In 1997, Marsalis' marathon Blood on the Fields (which was released as a three-CD set) became the first jazz-based work to win a Pulitzer Prize.

Kenny Barron


September 25 - September 26

Kenny Barron - Piano

Kiyoshi Kitagawa - Bass

Johnathan Blake - Drums


The pianist Kenny Barron has a brisk but unostentatious technique and a deceptively casual way with a phrase. He conveys a number of things clearly in his playing; what comes across over all is the quiet hum of effortless erudition. Within his playing you can hear a digest of mainstream jazz piano traditions, with bebop as the root. You can also hear the measured tension of an expert nudging himself toward a challenge.

Dayna Stehpens Black and White


October 2 - October 3

Dayna Stephens (saxophone)

Aaron Parks (piano)

Ben Street (bass)

Jaimeo Brown (drums)

Saxophonist Dayna Stephens is refreshing in his resistance to flash and fanciness. He often plays slowly, preferring to tread a reflective and soberly considered path rather than shoot helter-skelter through the chord changes and more oblique scale choices in order to impress...Stephens’ tone on tenor is a thing of beauty, relatively free of vibrato, and with lovely moulding of notes.
