Hear one of today’s most exciting jazz pianists lead his trio in this free concert at the Brooklyn Public Library. Widely acclaimed by critics and top artists alike, Sullivan Fortner is an exceptionally inventive and responsive player renowned as a bandleader and composer; as an unforgettable soloist and collaborator with leaders such as Wynton Marsalis and John Scofield; and for his longstanding, Grammy Award–winning duo partnership with Cécile McLorin Salvant. In 2015, he was named the American Pianist Association’s Cole Porter Fellow in Jazz—an illustrious honor given only once every four years.
