Sistas’ Place, 456 Nostrand Avenue, at the corner of Jefferson Avenue, where Jazz: A Music of the Spirit Lives and Culture is our Weapon, continues its 23rd season with the music of Resistance, Resilience, and Resurgence.
On Sunday, August 25th from 5 to 9 pm, Sistas’ Place presents pianist/composer Kenny Gates and Friends in our final show of the 23rd season.
As anyone who has touched a piano knows, it’s easy to sound notes. Therefore it is refreshing to find a pianist who is not in love with notes for their own sake (like some long-winded speaker) and whose interpretive talent befits the magnificence of the instrument. Mr. Gates has an instantly recognizable articulation, and you could swear (as in People Will Say We’re In Love) that he’s talking to you. His fills, as on Pannonica, are not just neighboring scale tones, but parenthetical asides that display a brilliant awareness of the intricacies of bop.
Don’t miss this!
