Jazz Piano Christmas XIX
This year, listeners heard lots of Latin Jazz onstage at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington D.C. This ever popular program included original interpretations of holiday favorites performed in concert by established jazz stars and talented newcomers. This year’s exciting lineup included Brazilian pianist and singer, Eliane Elias; Afro-Cuban jazz pianist and composer, Arturo O’Farrill; prolific pianist and composer of Latin and world music, Rebeca Mauleón; and New Orlean’s own premier modern jazz pianist, Ellis Marsalis. Felix Contreas hosted.
