John Medeski in concert, solo piano
Apr 10, 2013 06:00 PM - 09:00 PM
“Solo concerts allow me to go deeper, to enter an inner universe, and bring some people along for the ride,” says pianist John Medeski. “You can work with sound and rhythm in a different way than in a band setting. It allows for a much more intimate experience.”
Medeski has galvanized audiences in the U.S., Europe, Mexico, Japan and elsewhere with such solo performances, which he describes as “jazz, in the sense that stuff is left open for the moment,” but which reflect his classical training and passion for pop as much as his adoration of Monk and other jazz icons. These shows share one essential characteristic: “It’s just a piano in a room,” Medeski says. “Musically, it can go anywhere.”
