The Sullivan Fortner Trio At The AKG Art of Jazz Series
Saturday, November 17, 2018 @ 8:00 pm$24 – $29
7 pm Pre-concert Conversation: Raise Up Off Me
Series producer Bruce Eaton discusses the remarkable life and music of West Coast be-bop piano legend Hampton Hawes.
The latest in a line of New Orleans piano phenoms stretching back to Jelly Roll Morton, pianist Sullivan Fortner has been hailed as “a wondrous player, light of touch and vested with fleet, dazzling power” (The New York Times). Since winning the prestigious American Pianists Association Cole Porter Fellowship, Fortner has been heard around the world with musicians including Wynton Marsalis, Paul Simon, Roy Hargrove, and, most recently, touring and recording with vocal sensation Cecile McLorin Salvant. Moments Preserved, his recently acclaimed second album for Impulse! Records, showcases his mastery of both well-chosen standards and the composition of memorable melodies.
