Pianist extraordinaire Jon Weber, from NYC, in his award-winning review,

“Mr. Weber’s one-hour show is an enlightening music tutorial, delivered with enthusiasm and wit by a musician with no axes to grind and who is utterly devoid of professional grandiosity. He forms fascinating and unexpected connections between artists of different eras, their development and influences in jazz piano. But because Mr. Weber can play up a storm, it was also a thrilling demonstration of one man's passionate attachment to his chosen instrument”” wrote Stephen Holden, New York Times. Mr. Weber will include the major contributors to jazz including Charlie Parker, Thelonious Monk, Oscar Peterson, Herbie Hancock, Teddy Wilson, Bud Powell, Nat King Cole, Erroll Garner, Dave Brubeck, Oscar Peterson, and Chick Corea. “By embracing jazz,” explains Mr. Weber, “America culturally stopped being called ‘Europe Jr.”
