Solo jazz piano concerts
Infusing rhythmic power and melodic appeal into each arranged or original piece, Sowash has a knack for capturing the essence of the moment. Sharing humorous and touching stories from his life experiences between soulful performances, he forges even greater connections with listeners. Each concert contains a few recognizable standards, hymns or folk songs, yet he is most known for instilling feelings that words leave untouched into his original compositions, playing with broad strokes and structured abandon.
Bradley Sowash Ensemble Concerts
The Bradley Sowash Quintet performs a fast-paced and diverse program featuring hymns, spirituals, and other well-known tunes distinctively reinterpreted with a jazzy flair that has been described as “very accessible to the non-jazz aficionado.”
Sowash is known nationally for his formidable technique and instant audience rapport. Listeners are drawn in by his inspirational tales, engaging stories and life experiences woven between critically acclaimed music that has been heard on National Public Radio and PBS-TV.
How many colors and styles can be wrought from Amazing Grace? What if Beethoven and Duke Ellington met in heaven and decided to collaborate? Like a good book, Bradley will touch your spirit with humor, substance and a distinctive piano style which has been described as: "a marriage of contemporary jazz and classical stylings." Expect the unexpected.
