Known as one of the most diverse artists in jazz his highly innovative piano style and philosophy of jazz improvisation merges his love for great music from every era with his own creative imagination.
A pianist, composer, arranger and educator, the American artist has an ability to bring jazz and classical styles alongside each other, with equal brilliance.
Here he performs with his trio featuring Jason Marsalis, youngest son of Ellis Marsalis, on drums and Roland Guerin on bass, both based in New Orleans and immersed in its musical traditions.
Closely associated in his early career with the music of Wynton Marsalis, his style, similar to that of Oscar Peterson, steeped in the gospel and bebop traditions, makes him a truly compelling artist in any context.
