Pianist Sarah Jane Cion performs live at the PAC House with Ratzo Harris on bass and Jeffrey Lutz on drums.
Cion has taken the vocabulary of pianists Bill Evans, Oscar Peterson, and Wynton Kelly and melded it into her own language, which combines aggression with sensitivity and tradition with exploration. Her compositions and arrangements showcase both Cion’s gentle touch at one moment and rollicking Latin flavor in the next. She plays with a mature authority, and her performances are both lyrical and strikingly original. Be prepared for an evening filled with first-rate playing, catchy arrangements and memorable compositions.
”The music of Sarah Jane Cion is unapologetically pretty, It proceeds from her poetic vision, warm and elegiac, and her right hand takes us with her as it climbs. ” -Thomas Conrad , DOWNBEAT
