Jazz Pianist David Hazeltine to Perform at 19th Annual Art Tatum Memorial Jazz Scholarship Concert – Feb. 15

Jazz pianist David Hazeltine will perform at the 19th Annual Art Tatum Memorial Jazz Scholarship Concert, Monday February 15, 2010, at The University of Toledo Center for Performing Arts Recital Hall.

Influenced by Art Tatum and other jazz greats, like Bud Powell, Buddy Montgomery, Cedar Walton and others, Hazeltine has forged his own distinctive style and musical voice out of the accumulated greatness and weight of a modern piano tradition. Cedar Walton said “Hazeltine is for sure the brightest star on the jazz piano horizon. His style has a deep-seated commitment to jazz history while communicating a wealth of today’s ideas…”
Hazeltine has also received praise in the New York Times, The Jazz Journal and Jazz Times: “There is a lot to like in Mr. Hazeltine's playing...he likes the middle ground, he has worked on varying the intensity of his swing, and there is nothing obviously erratic about his improvising. The mainstream and its concerns with balance and poise are all-important to him. But those concerns are what makes his improvising worth listening to; he has absorbed the mainstream's concern with narrative, with the intellectual, clear telling of a tale.”—New York Times.
