Warren Chiasson Quartet
Our guest artist on the vibraphone, Warren Chiasson's performance will be a tribute to his mentor and friend, Teddy Charles.
This performance will also feature a rare opportunity to participate in a discussion segment with this world-renowned artist.
Warren Chiasson is a highly regarded musician in the jazz world who has been called "one of the six top vibraphonists of the last half century" by the New York Times.
Originally a member of the George Shearing Quintet, he has emerged as his own man with a distinctive four-mallet technique that he weaves into a percussive, melodic style.
Prior to forming his own group, Chiasson was for many years best known for his creative contributions to the Chet Baker Quartet, the Tal Farlow Trio, and jazz/pop diva Roberta Flack. In addition to recording his own albums, he has played on over 100 recordings with such artists as Eric Dolphy, Bill Dixon, Hank Crawford and was featured on a Grammy Award winning album with B.B. King.
