JazzPOP: Joshua White 6tet

Thursday August 15  |  8:00pm - 9:30pm
The Hammer Museum - Westwood


"In any setting, White stands out, thanks to his skill, sensitivity and improvisational verve...his combination of grace and fire is as impressive as the manner in which he can make even the knottiest passages sing and soar." — Jazztimes

Steeped in classical, gospel, and modern jazz, Joshua White is one of the most exciting voices in a generation in West Coast jazz. The San Diego pianist has performed and recorded with Mark Dresser, Nicole Mitchell, Rudresh Mahanthappa, David Binney, and Greg Osby, and is revered as an improviser of startling versatility and intellect. White's music privileges freedom and spontaneity, as he directs his band through passages pensive at one moment, thunderous the next.
