“Werner’s set…has quietly become the pianists’ yard stick of our era.” – Jazz Times
Guggenheim Fellow / pianist / composer / educator Kenny Werner has been a powerful force in jazz for over three decades. His thoughtful compositions have been performed by artists of every shade, but are shown to best advantage in a live setting with a band of his own design. It goes without saying that few designs could top this quintet, which features saxophonist David Sánchez, trumpeter Randy Brecker, bassist Scott Colley and percussionist Antonio Sánchez. Werner and company will perform expansive, cathartic works from a vast and varied repertoire, including the critically heralded No Beginning No End (Half Note, 2010).
