Billy Lester: An Afternoon of Improvised Solo Piano

Performing Arts Center Reisinger Auditorium

Open to the public

/ Tuesday


“Lester is a ‘musician’s musician’ and the kind of piano player that jazz fans love to discover: a quietly brilliant mind that has been building his own unique voice and sound for decades, just barely outside the jazz spotlight...Lester’s playing is gentle and probing, yet solid enough to carry strong melodic lines. It’s subtly transportive. Listening to it, you’ll find yourself getting swept away without even realizing you’re moving.” from Brian Zimmerman, JAZZIZ.
