ONLINE BROADCAST (Recorded: NOV 8, 2018)
“One of the top jazz pianists in the world” (The Los Angeles Times), Kenny Barron is a 2010 NEA Jazz Master and eleven-time GRAMMY nominee who helped define and extend the jazz tradition over his monumental career, which has included a lengthy association with SFJAZZ. Extensive work with Freddie Hubbard, Yusef Lateef, Stan Getz, James Moody and Ron Carter built his peerless reputation as a sideman, and he has recorded nearly 50 albums as a bandleader over his five-decade career. For this exclusive night of duets filmed in November 2018, the pianist is joined by three master musicians with whom Barron has had a long and distinguished history — violinist and MacArthur “Genius Grant” recipient Regina Carter, legendary trumpeter Eddie Henderson of Herbie Hancock and The Cookers fame, and drummer Terri Lyne Carrington, a 2021 NEA Jazz Master and SFJAZZ Resident Artistic Director.
