When it comes to nurturing new and promising talent, Jazz Standard continues to be a leader on the New York scene. Pianist Sands back and riding high on the release of his new Mack Avenue album Reach. At age 27, this Steinway Artist and three–time GRAMMY Award nominee poses abundant keyboard technique perfectly matched to his conception, which is nothing less than a fresh look at the entire language of jazz.
Sands reaches back to the past while adventuring into the future, whether the style is stride, swing, bebop, progressive, fusion, Brazilian or Afro–Cuban. He’s toured the world with Christian McBride’s trio and played on the bassist’s 2013 album Out Here, which received a GRAMMY nomination for Best Jazz Instrumental Album. In a single year, 2015, Christian Sands performed on six studio albums and on two live CDs: the Christian McBride Trio’s Live At The Vanguard and Sands’ debut recording Take One, recorded live at Jazzhus Montmartre in Copenhagen with drummer Alex Reil and bassist Thomas Fonnesbæk.
“...An imaginative composer, a clever arranger and a skillful technician with a fluid style.” – Downbeat
