A Jazz Piano Christmas | the 2014 edition

jazz piano christmas

On of my favourite traditions of this season is to set aside time to listen to the most recent edition of NPR’s Jazz Piano Christmas. This year’s concert was held at Washington’s Kennedy Center on Wednesday December 17, and featured a great line-up: jazz-legend Harold Mabern, newcomer Kris Davis, and seasoned veterans Lynne Arriale and Cyrus Chestnut.

I’d highly recommend taking an hour out from one of these busy days to pour yourself something to sip on and then settle back to enjoy some fine, fine music for the season. To access the video of this year’s concert, simply click here.

And if you happen to find yourself wanting more, I’d also recommend the 2011 version, which featured Alfredo Rodriguez, Barry Harris, Eddie Palmieri, and Jason Moran. That one also includes an archival performance by Dr. Billy Taylor, who died in January of that year. To give it a listen, click here.
