Jazz pianists come in many types, and in an ensemble setting, their signature styles — bluesy swing, moody modal shades, percussive comping — often determine the group’s personality. This month, special guest pianist Lovell Bradford joins the Ziad Jazz Quartet, featuring saxophonist Ziad Rabie; drummer Kobie Watkins; and bass player Ron Brendle; to explore the styles of some of the great jazz pianists. Tribute songs such as “Audrey” by Bud Powell, “Monk’s Mood” by Thelonious Monk, “Passion Dance” by McCoy Tyner, “To Wisdom The Prize” by Larry Willis, will be performed, plus many more!
$16 for museum members; $20 nonmembers.
