Chris Pattishall, Jazz Piano

October 29 - Chris Pattishall, piano

Due to unforeseen circumstances, Vuyo Sotashe is unable to appear on October 29. The concert has been changed to be a Jazz piano concert featuring the Chris Pattishall.

Chris Pattishall is a pianist and composer known for his wide stylistic breadth, meticulous sense of detail, empathy, and an inclination towards the surreal. An in-demand pianist and musical collaborator, Chris has established himself over the last decade as “an expert at using the jazz tradition as a jumping-off point for experimentation” (JazzTimes).

His 2021 release Zodiac — a reimagining of the Zodiac Suite by pioneering yet under-appreciated pianist and composer Mary Lou Williams — was called “a startling achievement” (NY Times) and “a hell of a debut album” (Stereogum).

Chris is a featured performer on a wide range of recordings, from the GRAMMY-nominated debut album of Jamison Ross to the film scores of Knives Out, Nightmare Alley, and the indie sensation Everything Everywhere All At Once. He co-composed the score to Going To Mars: The Nikki Giovanni Project (directed by Joe Brewster and Michele Stephenson) with Samora Pinderhughes. The film won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival.

He has collaborated with artists across multiple disciplines, including theater directors Shariffa Ali and Kamilah Long, tap dancer Michela Marino-Lerman, writer Simeon Marsalis, and visual artists Najja Moon and Kambui Olujimi. He contributed music to Kambui Olujimi’s installation In The Dark We Lose Our Edges for the Sharjah Biennial 15 as well as Samora Pinderhughes’s multimedia installation/exhibit The Healing Project.

Chris is a NY Voices Fellow at Joe’s Pub alongside vocalist Vuyo Sotashe – together they are working on a duo album that ranges from Duke Ellington to Xhosa hymns to Randy Newman. Chris was an Artist-In-Residence at Duke University (2021-2022), focusing on the musical and community impact of Mary Lou Williams. His original suite Fictions – based on the short stories of Jorge Luis Borges – received a 2019 Recording Grant from the Aaron Copland Fund.

He has performed at world-renowned venues including Carnegie Hall, Jazz at Lincoln Center, and the Whitney Museum, and toured internationally as a leader as well as with artists such as Wycliffe Gordon, Jamison Ross, Bria Skonberg, and Vuyo Sotashe.
