“…one of the most talented pianists of his generation.” - JazzTimes

French-American pianist Jacky Terrasson’s relationship to the piano has been compared to “Lebron James’ relationship to a 10 foot high basket…they could dunk in their sleep (JazzTimes).” After winning the prestigious 1993 Thelonious Monk Competition, he went through the venerable jazz university of Betty Carter and collaborated with vocalists such as Jimmy Scott, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Dianne Reeves and Cassandra Wilson. He is equally at home in the trio setting, where he continues Betty Carter’s tradition of discerning and employing only the finest young talent on the scene. Terrasson’s music draws on the vast influences of himself and his band members, ranging from the swing music of the early ‘30s to the hard driving funk of the ‘70s.  The European bandleader makes a rare West Coast appearance; he last played here at the 2009 jazz festival.
