Kenny Werner - piano
Jean-Michel Pilc - piano

Jean-Michel Pilc, winner of the 2000 Django Reinhardt Award and an incredible improviser who shone during the 2011 edition of the Montreal Jazz Festival, and Kenny Werner, long-time accompanist of harmonica master Toots Thielemans and a phenomenal soloist in his own right, have recently both been awarded Guggenheim Fellowships in Music Composition. For their duo piano performance at the Yardbird Suite, these two pianists who share a very special bond, will present a unique, playful and daring musical dialogue brilliantly delivered by two pianists at the zenith of their art.

Werner and Pilc have both enjoyed long performing, recording and teaching careers individually. Kenny’s 1996 groundbreaking book on improvisation “Effortless Mastery – Liberating the Master Musician Within” is a landmark opus on how to allow the master musician from within to manifest. Pilc has also recently released a book, "It's About Music - The Art and Heart of Improvisation" as well as an educational video for all instruments, "True Jazz Improvisation".

Quincy Jones has said of Kenny Werner: “Perfection, 360 degrees of soul and science in one human being. My kind of musician.”
