It felt like he was almost saying the words with me and making them ring or sparkle,”…….“It felt wonderful.
–Cécile McLorin Salvant

One of the most brilliant pianists of his generation, Sullivan Fortner makes his debut at The Bach! For the past decade, Fortner has been stretching deep-rooted talents as a pianist, composer, band leader and uncompromising individualist. The Grammy award-winning artist out of New Orleans received international praise for his collaborative work on the album The Window, alongside vocalist Cecile McLorin Salvant. As a solo leader he has released albums to critical acclaim as well. Now based in New York, Fortner has earned recognition in multiple DownBeat Critics Poll categories, winning first place in Rising Star Piano and Rising Star Jazz Artist.

In addition to associations with such diverse voices as Wynton Marsalis, Paul Simon, Diane Reeves, Etienne Charles and John Scofield, Fortner’s frequent and longtime collaborators have included, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Ambrose Akinmusire, Stefon Harris and the late Roy Hargrove.

This program is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts via the Western Jazz Presenters Network.
