Piano Starts Here: The Music of Bud Powell & Count Basie
November 18, 2020 @ 7:30 pm
KNKX presents Piano Starts Here: The Music of Bud Powell/Count Basie
The first stop for pianists seeking an education in bebop is Bud Powell. Similarly, Count Basie is the most crystallized voice in the style that came previously-swing. We’ll close out the season by celebrating these paradigms.
The Piano Starts Here series highlights the work of some of the most prolific and talented composers and pianists to have ever tackled the instrument. Each of the performances brings together Seattle’s finest pianists to perform the works of the artist selected for that evening on the Royal Room’s Steinway B grand piano.
