Shunzo Ohno Group featuring Lotus Chamber Collective

4 & 6 PM

“Extraordinary” best describes Shunzo Ohno. Considered Japan’s greatest trumpeter while still a teenager, recruited to Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers in 1974, his rise to jazz’s pinnacle — Grammy-winning recordings and international awards – came while overcoming cancer and a serious car accident. Incorporating traditional jazz, hip hop, and Japanese melodies in his music, he creates a tapestry that is distinctly Shunzo Ohno to inspire and unite audiences globally.

Bill Charlap Trio
feat. Peter Washington & Kenny Washington

FRI & SAT • DEC 20 & 21
7 & 9:30 PM

For over two decades, the Bill Charlap Trio – with bassist Peter Washington and drummer Kenny Washington – has reigned as one of jazz’s top groups, displaying jaw-dropping chemistry and on-the-fly interactivity, the result of their superior technique and hard-earned experience. Time Magazine wrote that Charlap “approaches a song the way a lover approaches his beloved. When he sits down to play, the result is an embrace, an act of possession.”

Sunday, Dec 22: Closed for Holiday


Eddie Palmieri Trio

FRI & SAT • JAN 3 & 4
7 & 9:30 PM

Known as one of the finest pianists of the past 60 years, Eddie Palmieri is a bandleader, arranger and composer of salsa and Latin jazz. His playing skillfully fuses the rhythm of his Puerto Rican heritage with the complexity of his jazz influences: Thelonious Monk, Herbie Hancock, McCoy Tyner as well as his older brother, Charlie Palmieri.

A 10-time Grammy winner, NEA (National Endowment for the Arts) Jazz Master, Palmieri is known for his unconventional and innovative sound that mixes American jazz with Afro-Caribbean rhythms that encompasses elements of salsa, funk, soul, and jazz.
