The GRAMMY Museum is thrilled to present an intimate conversation with Jon Batiste followed by a performance at National Sawdust in Brooklyn, NY. The conversation will include a discussion moderated by journalist Marcus J. Moore about Jon's career, latest album, World Music Radio, forthcoming documentary AMERICAN SYMPHONY and more.
Jon Batiste is one of the many artists to be featured in the GRAMMY Museum’s New York City program series, which includes bringing a slate of the GRAMMY Museum’s renowned GRAMMY In The Schools Education Programs and Public Programs to the East Coast in partnership with the City of New York Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment. “A New York Evening With…” is generously supported by the Dawn and Brian Hoesterey Family Foundation.
ABOUT JON BATISTE:
Jon Batiste is one of history’s most brilliant, prolific, and accomplished musicians.
Batiste studied and received both a B.A. and M.F.A. at the world-renowned Juilliard School in New York City. From 2015 until 2022, Batiste served as the bandleader and musical director of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on CBS. Most recently, Jon was awarded a Sports Emmy in the category of “Outstanding Open/Tease” for his 2022 NCAA March Madness piece. In 2018, he received a Grammy nomination for Best American Roots, and in 2020, he received two GRAMMY nods for the albums: CHRONOLOGY OF A DREAM: LIVE AT THE VILLAGE VANGUARD and MEDITATIONS (with Cory Wong).
In 2020, he won an Academy Award for Best Original Score for the Disney/Pixar film SOUL, an honor he shared with fellow composers Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. Jon’s work on SOUL also earned him a Golden Globe, a BAFTA, a NAACP Image Award and a Critic’s Choice Award. He is the second black composer in history, after legendary jazz musician Herbie Hancock, to win an Academy Award for composition.
Batiste’s album, WE ARE, was released in March 2021 to overwhelming critical acclaim. Subsequently, he was nominated for eleven GRAMMYs across seven different categories, a first in GRAMMY history. He went on to win five of those GRAMMYs, including Album of the Year.
Batiste’s latest studio album, World Music Radio, draws inspiration from his mission to create community and expand culture with the power of music.
Later this year, Netflix will release Batiste and his longtime partner, Emmy award-winning journalist and New York Times’ bestselling author Suleika Jaouad’s original documentary AMERICAN SYMPHONY. Directed by Matthew Heineman, the documentary delivers a portrait of two inimitable artists at a crossroad and a profound meditation on art, love, and the creative process.
