One of the so-called “young lions” to emerge in the late 1980s and first recognized for his influential work with trumpeter Roy Hargrove, Grammy-nominated altoist Antonio Hart has established himself as one of the finest instrumentalists in jazz. He is a graduate of the Berklee School and has recorded and performed with a plethora of jazz greats including Art Blakey, Dizzy Gillespie, McCoy Tyner and Nat Adderley. Antonio has maintained a long-term relationship with bass master Dave Holland and balances his performing schedule as a full-time professor of jazz studies at the Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College. He has released seven acclaimed albums, including his latest Chiaroscuro release, All We Need, which features tenor sax legend Jimmy Heath. Antonio Hart replaces Miguel Zenón for the Spring 2012 tour only.
