It is with great pleasure that the CCB and the Incubadora d’artes present Christian Sands.
A five-time Grammy nominee, Christian Sands is an emerging jazz force whose abundant piano technique and artistry bring a fresh look to the entire language of jazz. At just 32 years old, the pianist and composer is arguably the leading pianist of his generation and a former prodigy who more than lived up to his initial promise, accumulating work as a bandleader that rivals established veterans with twice his age. He released his debut album in 2002 at just 12 years old, toured the world as part of Christian McBride’s trio and was named one of the future rising jazz stars by Jet Magazine and Vanity Fair. With his latest album, Be Water, Christian Sands takes inspiration from the tranquility and power of water – echoing its fluidity and malleability.
