pic   An Evening with Pianist HELEN SUNG
Monday, Oct. 5, 2015

Helen Sung has worked with such luminaries as Clark Terry, Ron Carter, Steve Turre, the legendary Wayne Shorter, and MacArthur Fellow Regina Carter; and, in addition to her own band, can currently be seen with fine ensembles including the Mingus Big Band & Dynasty Band, the T.S.Monk Group, and Terri Lyne Carrington's Grammy-winning Mosaic Project. With five first-rate albums to her credit, Sung's next recording, Anthem For A New Day, is her debut on Concord Records. A bright future is certainly in store for this exciting artist whom Wynton Marsalis named as one of his 'Who's Got Next: Jazz Musicians to Watch!'

  An Evening with Pianist DAN TEPFER
Monday, Nov. 2, 2015

Born in Paris to American parents, “tremendously gifted” (LA Times) pianist-composer Dan Tepfer has translated his bi-cultural identity into an exploration of music that ignores stylistic bounds. His 2011 Goldberg Variations / Variations, which pairs his performance of Bach’s work with improvised variations of his own, has received broad praise as a “riveting, inspired, fresh musical exploration” (New York Times).
