Original show description below.

Even amidst the expansive, treasure-laden, and epically consequent discographies of Chick Corea and Gary Burton, Crystal Silence stands out as a lightning-strike encounter. Released in 1973, the album introduced a partnership that exemplified how the deepest jazz could also be guileless, wide-eyed and exuberantly playful.

Bay Area born pianist Parker Grant and Kyle Athayde, a gifted vibraphonist from Orinda who studied trumpet at Manhattan School of Music, bring their abundant skills and vivid imaginations to Crystal Silence’s beloved tunes by Corea and Steve Swallow.

A multi-instrumentalist who also performs on piano, bass, bass clarinet, drums and sundry percussion, Athayde hails from a musical family and has thrived bicoastally as a composer, arranger, teacher, and bandleader best known for the Kyle Athayde Dance Party, his stylistically omnivorous big band.

A longtime friend of Athayde, Grant is an exceptional pianist who studied under Athayde’s father, the renowned Bay Area band director Bob Athayde and is a graduate of the University of Miami. He is an accomplished educator and choral accompanist at San Francisco’s Adda Clevenger School.
