Kevin Hays

Kevin Hays is internationally recognized as one of the premier jazz pianists of his generation. Many of his 15 recordings as leader have received critical acclaim from publications such as The New York Times, Downbeat Magazine and Jazz Times, as well as a “Coup de Coeur” from the Académie Charles Cros (France). A prolific sideman appearing on over 60 records, Hays’s long list of notable musical associations include records with Chris Potter, Joshua Redman, Nicholas Payton, and Al Foster.

Kevin’s performance will feature a combination of material from various sources and genres. Being an improviser, he decides on much of the program as he goes along, but it will likely include his original songs, spontaneous interpretations of jazz standards, and improvisations on classical, folk and blues themes. Kevin considers the audience to be a participant in the process and one can expect many delightful surprises along the way.
