The Harlem Renaissance of the 21st century is captivated by a pianist trio that travels through the history of jazz piano.

Emmett Cohen, a prominent pianist who has traveled the history of jazz piano from stride style to contemporary, will appear as a leader trio. In 2011, he was selected as a finalist in the Thelonious Monk Competition and released his first album, In the Element. He has performed at major jazz festivals and famous clubs, and was a member of Christian McBride's visiting group. In 2019, he was the winner of the American Pianist Awards. Since March 2020 during the pandemic, he has been broadcasting “Live from Emmet's Place” every Monday from his home in Harlem. It has been recorded with a variety of guests, from masters to young artists, and has now evolved into a regular-based jazz distribution that boasts the world's largest number of views. This performance, which includes his latest work "Uptown in Orbit,'' looks like it will show us the Harlem Renaissance of the 21st century.


Emmet Cohen is the winner of the 2019 American Pianists Awards.
