Christian Sands Trio
Advance ticket sales for this show have ended.
Tickets will be available at the door starting at 5:30 PM
Christian Sands is currently one of the most in-demand pianists working in jazz. In the last few years he has toured around the world as a bandleader and recently appeared as a sideman on records by Christian McBride and Gregory Porter. After the one-two punch of Reach and Reach Further – EP (Sands’ dynamic 2017 Mack Avenue debut and his live/unreleased studio tracks EP follow-up), Facing Dragons is Sands’ return to the recording studio with an indestructible ensemble and an unwavering allegiance to the groove. “I like the freedom of the trio format,” says Sands. “It’s more dramatic to me. It’s a smaller entity but with a big personality. I can fit it into different situations dynamically, compositionally.” Sands will be joined on this concert date by Yasushi Nakamura on bass and Jerome Jennings on drums.
