Thursday, December 8th @ 7:30 PM - SOLO PERFORMANCE AT THE HOUSE

“Fortner’s ability to simultaneously project his own voice
and reflect those of others reveals an empathy.” 
DownBeat Magazine 

“His fundamentals as a player could hardly be stronger, and his instincts as a composer
and bandleader are almost startlingly mature.”
New York Times

Join us for our second installment of a brand new partnership with The Blue LLama Jazz Club featuring intimate solo sets by notable jazz artists presented at Kerrytown Concert House, along with an additional performance in the same week by the artists and the groups they lead at The Blue LLama Jazz Club!
