Perhaps more than any other musician on the current scene, Cyrus embodies American jazz piano history from Fats Waller to Art Tatum to Bill Evans. He’s a brilliant performer who, from age 3, simply wanted to play the piano. Cyrus became the church pianist at age 9 and Gospel music remains at the core of his playing. There is no better, or more entertaining soloist on the planet!
“Pianist Cyrus Chestnut can do it all… he tackles a broad range of styles with both taste and intelligence.
“His brand of crisp articulation and blues-inflected harmony evokes another era… What makes his music FLY is a complete security in his style, and that sense of untroubled self-assurance.” – New York Times
A terrific SOLD OUT performance!
