Cyrus Chestnut, solo piano

“What makes Chestnut the best jazz pianist of his generation is a willingness to abandon notes and play space,” said Time Magazine. Chestnut reached for the piano before he could walk and by age nine was the church pianist at Mt. Calvary Star Baptist Church in Baltimore, Maryland. Chestnut’s improvisational skills and unique jazz-gospel and bop style is credited to his early years playing in church. Chestnut continually tours, playing live at jazz festivals around the world as well as clubs and concert halls.

This event is part of the Just Friends Jazz Series.
Complimentary wine, beer and non-alcoholic beverages will be available at the performance. More information
