Named “jazz star of the future” by Wynton Marsalis, 28-year-old Christian Sands is one of the most in-demand jazz pianists, touring the world as a bandleader and appearing on records by Christian McBride and Gregory Porter. As the new Creative Ambassador for Octave Music’s Erroll Garner Jazz Projects, and the co-producer of the recent Erroll Garner release ‘Nightconcert’ (Mack Avenue Records), Christian Sands formed this special three piano program, choosing Helen Sung and Tadataka Unno to present audiences with a fresh take on legendary pianist/composer Erroll Garner, who remains one of the most important musical voices of the 20th century.
