Solo Piano and then some: A Series of Chamber Jazz Performances - Not every pianist is a solo-pianist (or even a duet performer) ; the transparent, exposed nature of the form dictates a sensitivity to rhythmic and coloristic virtuosity that is quite above the demands of other performing situations. This 8-week series highlighted outstanding keyboardists in both solo and duo framework. Nestled within the Museum’s smaller gallery, each recital was an intimate musical experience in the most intimate context jazz has to offer.
