Kenny Barron first hit the international scene in 1962, while working with the legendary Dizzy Gillespie, and is considered one of the all-time greats of jazz piano. Kenny’s TJF performance is part of his 80th Birthday Tour, and features top-notch accompaniment courtesy of Kiyoshi Kitagawa on double bass and Johnathan Blake on drums. Besides recording and performing, Barron has spent recent decades teaching piano at Rutgers University and the Juilliard School. Don’t miss this opportunity to delight in this master’s refined phrasing, the result of a career that spans more than half a century alongside stars of the jazz world like Freddie Hubbard, Joe Henderson and Stan Getz.
