Two elegant and soulful jazz pianists improvise duets on the fly. Barron is a master who makes every note count, a deft soloist and accompanist who enriched the music of Dizzy Gillespie, Stan Getz and others. Miller, who cut his teeth with Art Blakey, is a worthy foil.
|Event Description||Series: Pianism. The piano duo is one of the great pleasures in jazz, a format that allows colleagues to collaborate with 20 fingers flying. Keyboard savants Kenny Barron and Mulgrew Miller have enjoyed several prior encounters, inspiring each other’s dazzling improvisations.|
