Cyrus Chestnut Birthday Celebration
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
Cyrus Chestnut leads his harmonically rich, soulful piano trio with bassist Eric Wheeler and drummer Chris Beck. "His brand of crisp articulation and blues inflected harmony evokes another era… multifaceted and dynamic…" says The New York Times while Time adds, "What makes Chestnut the best pianist of his generation is a willingness to abandon notes and play space," Inspired by gospel music throughout his life, Cyrus draws on a range of musical influences while never straying too far from the blues which The New York Daily News state makes him "the rightful heir to Bud Powell, Art Tatum and Erroll Garner."
Venue: Smoke Jazz and Supper Club
