A protégé of Dr. Billy Taylor and frequent collaborator with bassist Christian McBride, pianist Christian Sands commands “astonishing chops” (JazzTimes) and “demonstrates a surprising maturity in his approach to interpreting tunes from the jazz canon” (NPR.org). His meteoric rise with appearances at the 2006 and 2007 Grammy Awards included a highly publicized duet with legendary pianist Oscar Peterson. Named by Wynton Marsalis as a rising star of jazz in Jet magazine, Steinway artist Christian Sands takes a fresh look at the entire language of jazz: “My music is about teaching the way of jazz and keeping it alive.”

“Mr. Sands reeled off a solo of such hot-dogging virtuosity that the only proper response

was to gasp or holler” (The New York Times)
