I had the pleasure of playing a bit with Christian Sands this past week at a rehearsal, and he brought an amazing energy on the piano to whatever songs we threw at him.  Christian's been called a "rising star" in the jazz world, and has appeared as a performer in the past two Grammies (see the video), with one Grammy nomination under his belt (also check out a video of him performing in New Jersey here).

If you want to check him out in concert, I'll be playing with him at the at the SPIRIT Improv Ensemble concert on May 4, at 7:30pm as part of the Teachers College Improv-A-Thon.  The location is Milbank Chapel at Teachers College, Columbia University (525 W. 120th St., New York NY 10027).  Hope to see some of you there!
