    Virtuosic and playful, pianist Cyrus Chestnut’s hard swinging, soulful sounds have become a staple in the world jazz community. Chestnut blends contemporary jazz, traditional jazz and gospel, plus the occasional seasonings of Latin and samba, giving himself plenty of freedom to explore different emotions, while keeping his music in recognizable form. World-renowned special guest and multiple Grammy nominee, Stefon Harris, is one of the planet’s preeminent vibraphonists and composers.
