Jazz at Saint Michael's with Pianist Mulgrew Miller
Legendary jazz pianist, Mulgrew Miller, inspired from the start by Oscar Peterson, will perform jazz at Saint Michael's on Thursday, Feb. 9, at 7:30 p.m. in Saint Michael's McCarthy Arts Center. The concert is free and open to the public, made possible by the vanderHeyden Endowment for the Arts.
Miller, a native of Greenfield, Mississippi, has toured widely and has made over 400 recordings alone and with such ensembles as Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers, the Woody Shaw Quintet, the Mercer Ellington Orchestra, and over six years with the Tony Williams Quintet.
His peers label Miller "the most demanded pianist in jazz." Critics say, "Miller plays elegant, grown up music that's tasteful, melodic, and rhythmic," All About Jazz. "...a pianist who has been impressing his fellow musicians with accomplished, inventive and increasingly individual playing and composing," The New York Times.
Mulgrew Miller will be joined by saxophonist Brian McCarthy and bassist John Rivers.
