Named one of jazz’s future rising stars by Wynton Marsalis, pianist Christian Sands is a Steinway artist and three-time Grammy nominee. Through his abundant piano technique, Sands takes a fresh look at the entire language of jazz. Whether it’s stride, swing, bebop, progressive, fusion, Brazilian, or Afro-Cuban, he honors the past while providing unusual and stimulating interpretations for the present . . . and for the future. Armed with an extensive vocabulary of patterns, textures, and structures, he nonetheless maintains a strong sense of understatement, sensitivity, taste, and swing—hallmarks for as long as he has been playing. Sands states, “My music is about teaching the way of jazz and keeping it alive.”
