Jorge Luis Pacheco Campos Trio

With pianist Jorge Luis Pacheco Campos
Jorge Luis Pacheco Campos is a virtuoso pianist, vocalist, percussionist, composer, and arranger who “defies genre,” according to Monty Alexander. He has collaborated with such artists as Chucho Valdés, Arturo O’Farrill, and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis during its historic trip to Cuba. While grounded in Cuban jazz, his group’s modern approach includes heady rhythmic shifts, breakneck pace, and exciting compositions that highlight Pacheco’s experience writing for solo performance and small groups as well as a string symphony and documentary scores.

Bria Skonberg

Trumpeter, singer, and songwriter Bria Skonberg is a local favorite who received rave reviews for her latest release, Bria. A collection of originals and standards such as “Que Sera Sera” and “You’re Getting to be a Habit with Me,” Bria effectively showcases Skonberg’s place in the jazz/pop lineage pioneered by artists like Harry Connick, Jr., Diana Krall, and Michael Buble. Her music is imbued with a hip, hot jazz vibe that keeps the energy high and provides ample opportunity for memorable solos. Skonberg’s previous appearance at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola was a sold-out evening of love songs from the Big Easy, and this upcoming performance promises to be a similarly joyful and swinging affair.

Home for the Holidays featuring Kenny Washington

With vocalist Kenny Washington, pianist Isaiah J. Thompson, bassist Philip Norris, drummer Joe Farnsworth, and guitarist Cosimo Fabrizio
Vocalist Kenny Washington is a supreme vocalist who knows how to spread holiday cheer through swing. He recently toured and recorded with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis for Big Band Holidays, adding sophisticated grace and playful improvisation to a wide variety of favorite tunes. He’s joined by a rhythm section that alone would be well worth checking out. Isaiah J. Thompson, Philip Norris, and Cosimo Fabrizio are all extraordinarily talented and award-winning young musicians who have also appeared on Jazz at Lincoln Center’s larger stages, and Joe Farnsworth is a true veteran who recently headlined at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola with a group featuring Harold Mabern and Bob Cranshaw. All told, it’s a great show for both dedicated jazz fans and casual listeners in search of some New York City holiday spirit.

Dick Hyman: Solo Piano

With pianist Dick Hyman
Following up his appearance as a special guest for the sold-out 2016-17 season opener with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis, legendary pianist Dick Hyman will treat audiences to intimate solo performances. Hyman’s career includes a nearly encyclopedic output of over 100 albums under his name, ranging from original piano and orchestral works, to interpretations of classic American music, ragtime, and variants of stride piano. The 89-year-old pianist is rumored to never miss a note, and while that in no way defines his art, the rumor’s mere existence in the context of such demanding music speaks volumes of his technical mastery. This is a chance to see America’s greatest music performed at the highest level by a living legend.
