Wednesday, April 20, 2016 at 7:30 p.m.


Renee Rosnes, cited as "one of the finest pianists in jazz," is joined by vibraphonist Steve Nelson, bassist Peter Washington, and drummer Lewis Nash. Originally from Vancouver, Rosnes has recorded and toured with a veritable "who's who" of jazz, being the pianist of choice for such legendary musicians as Joe Henderson, Wayne Shorter, JJ Johnson, Buster Williams, and Bobby Hutcherson. In 1989, James Moody hired her for his quartet, and she remained a member of his band until his passing in 2010. She is a founding member of the all-star octet, the SFJAZZ Collective, with whom she toured for six years. Rosnes has released fifteen critically acclaimed albums, garnering four Juno Awards (Canadian equivalent of the Grammy), and has appeared on numerous other recordings as a consummate sideman. In addition to her musical accomplishments, she is a producer, musical director, radio host, and jazz journalist. Rosnes often performs with her husband, Grammy-nominated pianist Bill Charlap.
