Pianist-composer  Uri Caine has played with a veritable who’s-who of jazz, from hard bop legend Hank Mobley to soul-jazz leader Grover Washington to avant-garde icon John Zorn,  from scat singer Annie Ross to the man who has been described as “James Brown trapped in Don Knotts’ body,” Arto Lindsay.  He  has performed Duke Ellington numbers with Don Byron and arrangements of Mahler, Beethoven, and Bach with his own trio.  He has been commissioned by the Vienna Volksoper, the Beaux Arts Trio, and the American Composers Orchestra, and was Director of the Venice Biennale for Music in 2003.  Caine brings this remarkable versatility to Washington’s vibrant H Street Corridor as part of On LOCation: Concerts at the Atlas Performing Arts Center.

Tickets are still available for this concert on Saturday, May 22 at 8:00pm.

Please join us for a pre-concert presentation (no tickets required) at the Atlas at 6:15 pm. Larry Appelbaum, host of WPFW’s “Sound of Surprise” and a Reference Specialist in the Music Division, will interview Uri Caine.
