This 13-year-old phenom has caught fire in jazz circles and beyond in recent months, with television appearances on Today and 60 Minutes, the cover of DownBeat and features The New York Times and People magazine. He began playing at the age of 5, picking out Thelonius Monk tunes on an electric keyboard. At 9, he won a major international competition, and by 11 he was playing the major jazz festivals including Newport and Monterey. His second album garnered two Grammy® nominations — making him the youngest jazz artist ever nominated. His mentor, Wynton Marsalis says: “I love everything about his playing — his rhythm, his confidence, his understanding of the music.” Don’t miss this chance to hear this exciting young artist!
