Kenny Barron ranks among jazz’s piano aristocracy as a bandleader, composer, arranger and mentor to young musicians. Deemed by critics as “the most lyrical piano player of our time”, he first came to international prominence for his remarkable recordings with the late, great Stan Getz. However, his storied career is marked by an insatiable musical curiosity and a commitment to artistic honesty.  Tonight, Barron presents material from his current Universal album, The Traveller, an elegant album of ballads - almost all originals - that is his most personal and accomplished record to date.

Biography

Over the last five decades, Kenny Barron has ranked among jazz’s piano aristocracy as a bandleader, composer, arranger and mentor to young musicians. He has been honored with the top prizes in the U.S. that recognize and celebrate artistry and contributions to the legacy of jazz, including the National Endowment for the Arts’ Jazz Masters, the American Jazz Hall of Fame and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Deemed by critics as “one of the foremost exponents of the modern mainstream” and “the most lyrical piano player of our time,” Barron has recorded more than 40 albums, been nominated for multiple Grammy Awards and has collaborated with a who’s who of the jazz world as a leader and, on occasion, sideman. Heralded for a storied career marked by an insatiable musical curiosity and a commitment to artistic honesty, Barron today continues to tour widely with his trio and quintet.

Tonight, Barron presents material from his new recording ‘The Traveller’ (Universal France), an elegant album of ballads, almost all originals, that is his most  personal and accomplished record to date.
