Lynne Arriale with UW Madison Contemporary Jazz Ensemble

March 12 @ 7:30 pm


Performance with UW Madison Contemporary Jazz Ensemble. The 7:30 p.m. performance also features trumpeter/composer Chad McCullough. Free.

Hailed as “one of the most exciting pianists in contemporary jazz” (The Guardian, UK) and “the poet laureate of her generation” (Jazz Police), Arriale has performed on the most prestigious international concert stages over the past 30 years. JazzTimes said of her, “Lynne Arriale’s music lies at the synaptic intersection where brain meets heart, where body meets soul. She is one of jazzdom’s most intensely unique voices.” She has been consistently praised as having a “singular voice” as a pianist, bandleader, and composer. Following the release of The Lights Are Always On, Jazzthing observed, “Lynne Arriale has been one of the great poets on the piano for decades.” Jazz Journal commented, “On her 16th album, [Arriale] demonstrates that she is clearly one of the best contemporary jazz pianists.“

Lynne won the Great American Jazz Piano Competition, and her albums have topped the JazzWeek Radio Charts and received “best of” honors in major publications. She toured Japan with “100 Golden Fingers” with Tommy Flanagan, Hank Jones, Monty Alexander, Cedar Walton, Kenny Barron, Harold Mabern, Roger Kellaway, Junior Mance and Ray Bryant. She has performed at major international festivals including Montreux, Burghausen, Gilmore, Spoleto Arts, Montreal, Monterey, North Sea, Stuttgart, Pori, San Francisco, Ottawa, Zagreb, Perth, Brisbane, Rouen, Sardinia, Rochester, Wigan, Poznan, Estoril, Inverness, Cork, and San Javier, and has given five performances at the Kennedy Center.
