Christian Sands Presents the Erroll Garner 3 Piano Summit
An evening of top-notch, contemporary piano jazz with emerging keyboard star and GRAMMY nominee Christian Sands, who will be joined by two other pianists to be announced.
At age 29, Christian Sands has already become a standard-bearer for a new generation of jazz pianists, and has earned five GRAMMY Award nominations, including one for Best Latin Jazz Piano Solo. He spent six years as the pianist in Christian McBride’s trio and Inside Straight quartet, and was classified as “a jazz star of the future” by Wynton Marsalis.
Sands’ stylistic range includes stride piano, swing, bebop, progressive jazz, fusion, Brazilian, and Afro-Cuban. His acclaimed 2017 debut CD, Reach, a combination of originals and covers, spent four weeks at the top of the Billboard Jazz Charts. “With a talent like Christian Sands at the keys, anything is possible,” says The New York Observer.
