Ballads

About this Concert:

In this meditation on the ballad, the Atrium Jazz Ensemble (AJE) led by Artistic Director Jeremy Walker, draws inspiration from two of John Coltrane’s greatest albums: John Coltrane and Johnny Hartman and his simply-titled Ballads.

  • Jeremy Walker, piano
  • Rodolfo Nieto, vocals
  • Brandon Wozniak, saxophone
  • Jeff Bailey, bass
  • Kevin Washington, drums

More Details:

  • From ache to flirtation to every kind of indigo mood, the jazz ballad is one of the great achievements of American art.
  • The AJE will dig deep into the Great American Songbook, including music by Gershwin, Strayhorn, Rogers and Hart, and others.
  • Rodolfo Nieto’s rich baritone bathes listeners in singular sound—from opera to musicals to the music of Billy Strayhorn.
  • Bring your sweetheart or your memories. A ballad is a solitary contemplation enjoyed in the company of other revelers.
