About

The American avant-garde jazz pianist and composer Myra Melford returns to the Kennedy Center with her quintet, having recently appeared with drummer and D.C. native Allison Miller as part of the 2016 Mary Lou Williams Jazz Festival. A 2013 Guggenheim Fellow, Melford was described by the San Francisco Chronicle as an “explosive player, a virtuoso who shocks and soothes, and who can make the piano stand up and do things it doesn’t seem to have been designed for.”
