Christian Sands Quartet (Virtual Concert)
853 Broadway, New York, NY 10003, USA
Our weekly "Flip Side Sessions" virtual concert series continues with an emerging jazz force: pianist Christian Sands. Fresh off his 2020 Grammy nomination for Best Instrumental Composition from his latest Mack Avenue Records album Be Water, Sands perfectly matches his abundant piano technique with his conception, accomplishing a much deeper musical goal: a fresh look at the entire language of jazz. Christian says, “My music is about teaching the way of jazz and keeping it alive.” Whether it’s stride, swing, bebop, progressive, fusion, Brazilian or Afro-Cuban, Sands develops the past while providing unusual and stimulating vehicles for the present… and for the future. He expresses himself through an extensive vocabulary of patterns, textures and structures, all the while maintaining a strong sense of understatement, sensitivity, taste and swing — hallmarks for as long as he has been playing.
