Surely one of the most celebrated of all jazz pianists is 2010 NEA Jazz Master Kenny Barron. He has won every imaginable distinction among DownBeat and JazzTimes Readers and Critics polls. He is a six-time recipient of the Best Pianist award by the Jazz Journalists Association. His recordings on the Verve label have earned a stunning nine Grammy nominations. Kenny has collaborated with many of the jazz giants from Stan Getz to Dizzy Gillespie, Freddie Hubbard, Charlie Haden, Stanley Turrentine and Eddie Harris, as well as a younger generation including Stefon Harris and Lionel Loueke. Veterans George Mraz and Lewis Nash round out the trio.

Also featured in the group is phenomenal saxophonist Danya Stephens, widely known as a mentor to young musicians at the Stanford Jazz Workshop over the past ten years. He has collaborated with jazz elite such as John Scofield, Roy Hargrove, Terrence Blanchard, Dr. Lonnie Smith and Eric Harland to become both a fiery bandleader and an in-demand sideman.
