Christian McBride calls multifaceted pianist/composer Emmet Cohen “one of the most dynamic young musicians on the scene today.” Elegant introspection, neo-classical flourishes, and bravura bebop chops that are “guaranteed to make the walls sweat” (WGBO)—this young superstar has it all! Ron Carter is a living legend and the most-recorded jazz bassist in history, appearing on over 2,220 sessions. From The Miles Davis Quintet in ‘63-‘68, to Eric Dolphy, Horace Silver, The Kronos Quartet, and his many projects as a leader, the multiple GRAMMY Award-winner’s prolific output is matched only by his dynamic artistry. With rising jazz dynamo Evan Sherman (Jimmy Heath, Cyrus Chestnut) drums.
This special concert will be recorded for a release on the Cellar Live imprint
