Not yet 30, Christian Sands is currently one of the most in-demand pianists working in jazz and, at such a young age, already finds himself in conversations about the greatest jazz pianists of all time.
A five-time Grammy nominee, Sands takes a fresh look at the language of Jazz, including stride, swing, bebop, progressive, fusion, Brazilian and Afro-Cuban. Words don’t do justice in describing the quality of Sands and his band, just play the video below. If you are a Jazz lover, you will join us at BlackRock on February 8 for this experience.
This engagement of Christian Sands is made possible through the Jazz Touring Network program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
