“There’s just no way not to like Cyrus Chestnut.”—AllMusic 
First call pianist for the Dizzy Gillespie Big Band and both The Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall Jazz Orchestras, Cyrus Chestnut absorbed years of experience as a sideman with Betty Carter, Wynton Marsalis, and scores of other great players before stepping into the spotlight as a charismatic and thought-provoking composer/bandleader. Blending contemporary and traditional jazz with gospel and hints of Latin and samba, Time Magazine raves that, “what makes Chestnut the best jazz pianist of his generation is a willingness to abandon notes and play space.”
