About

Nine-time Grammy nominee Kenny Barron's unmatched ability to mesmerize audiences with his elegant playing, sensitive melodies, and infectious rhythms is what inspired the Los Angeles Times to name him "one of the top jazz pianists in the world." The recipient of the 2010 NEA Jazz Master Award and a BNY Mellon Jazz 2008 Living Legacy Award, Barron "delivers alternately open and dense harmonies that buoy his music; his sure-footed, rippling rhythms make everything flow" (Newark Star-Ledger). He performs with his trio.
