Celebrated pianist John Medeski, whose work with the trailblazing instrumental trio Medeski Martin & Wood set new standards for soulful improvisation, has been hailed by the Chicago Tribune's Howard Reich for "the virtuosity of his technique, the alacrity of his imagination, and the depth of his knowledge of jazz history." He has collaborated with the likes of T Bone Burnett, former Phish guitarist-frontman Trey Anastasio, Grateful Dead alumnus Phil Lesh, gospel group The Blind Boys of Alabama, and rock collective Grizzly Adams. Don't miss this rare opportunity to hear Medeski in a solo, concert hall setting, previewing the release of his new solo piano album.
