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.

Classic! I'm especially excited for the Halloween show and seeing the Center haunted-out. Make it spooky, Maceo!

Flamenco, soul & jazz? YES! I cannot wait to hear this woman. I want to see this show out of sheer intrigue.

Seeing her last season had me in tears of joy the entire show. Her energy and style are unstoppable.

      Friday, January 24, 7:30pm      
      at Grace Cathedral

I think this rockstar organist is going to bring magic to Grace Cathedral. The acoustics there are other-wordly, and I think this will be a memorable, dare I say, religious experience.
