"Unlike many a promising prodigy -- especially those with fabulous but rivetingly robotic chops -- Sands has not only lived up to his promise, but promises to evolve in new directions that not even his tutors could have imagined."
-Owen McNally, WNPR
Christian Sands has been playing professionally since he was twelve years old and began studying with his mentor, pianist and jazz savant Dr. Billy Taylor, when he was just fourteen. His newest CD REACH (released April 21, 2017), is hailed as "breaking new ground" into "fresh-sounding music influenced by a range of styles, from Afro-Cuban rhythms to hip hop beats to dirty blues with an edge."
The 2017 Hyde Park Jazz Festival Benefit honoree is Festival co-founder Lauren Moltz.
