Jazz Piano from the 1960s to Today with Johannes Wallman
September 19, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Many of modern jazz’s mainstream piano techniques were developed in the 1960s. During that tumultuous decade, jazz musicians and composers questioned and challenged every convention of their genre. Among the most significant of the 1960s jazz piano innovators were Bill Evans, McCoy Tyner, Herbie Hancock, and Chick Corea. UW-Madison Director of Jazz Studies, pianist Dr. Johannes Wallmann, and his jazz quartet, demonstrate the major developments in jazz in the 1960s. Wallmann pays tribute to these giants of the jazz piano with a set of music that includes compositions by each pianist, as well as by Wallmann himself.
