2022 Charleston Jazz Festival: Emmet Cohen Trio feat. Lucy Yeghiazaryan + Bruce Harris
Multifaceted American jazz pianist and composer Emmet Cohen is one of his generation’s pivotal figures in music and the related arts. Downbeat praised the “nimble touch, measured stride and warm harmonic vocabulary” he employs to communicate with other musicians and audiences at what he terms “the deepest level of humanity and individuality.” Leader of the “Emmet Cohen Trio” and creator of the “Masters Legacy Series,” Cohen is an internationally acclaimed jazz artist and dedicated music educator.
Emmet Cohen is the winner of the 2019 American Pianists Awards and the Cole Porter Fellow of the American Pianists Association. He also was a finalist in the 2011 Thelonious Monk International Piano Competition. Cohen has appeared at major international jazz festivals and at Lincoln Center’s Rose Hall and Washington’s Kennedy Center, in addition to headlining at the Village Vanguard and other major New York jazz clubs. During the lockdown he created “Live From Emmet’s Place,” a weekly livestream that received millions of internet views worldwide. It mirrors the Harlem Rent Parties that sprung up 100 years ago–the roaring twenties of the 1900’s. It is their modern, digital version, which supported many jazz musicians and listeners during the hardships of 2020/21.
As a young immigrant who has brought the real richness of her heritage together with her love for what is truly American, Lucy Yeghiazaryan beautifully sounds out the best expression of the American dream. Yeghiazaryan has established herself as a leading voice in the world of straight ahead vocal jazz in and outside of New York City.
Born and raised in the Bronx, NY, trumpeter Bruce Harris has earned a reputation as one of the most important and emerging voices in jazz today. Bruce Harris’s professional career as a performer has been defined by his infectious joy, undeniable passion and youthful energy.
Join us for the 2022 Charleston Jazz Festival featuring the Emmet Cohen Trio with Lucy Yeghiazaryan and Bruce Harris on April 22, 2022 at the Charleston Music Hall.
