Multifaceted jazz pianist and composer Emmet Cohen is in the vanguard of his generation’s advancement of music. Earshot Jazz brings Cohen to Town Hall’s stage to lead his namesake ensemble, the Emmet Cohen Trio. Possessing a fluid technique, an innovative tonal palette, and an extensive repertoire, Cohen plays with the command and passion of an artist fully devoted to his medium. Cohen notes that performing jazz is “about communicating the deepest levels of humanity and individuality; it’s essentially about connections,” both among musicians and with audiences. Experience a performance of empathetic and exploratory jazz by a devoted modern master of the medium.
The 31st Annual Earshot Jazz Festival celebrates the art form’s leading edges and cultural heritage. For 33 days, jazz greats from around the world and renowned resident artists come together to create, share, improvise, explore, collaborate, and swing.
