Happy Birthday, Kenny Barron, born June 9, 1943

Understated but amazing, those words fit Kenny Barron’s piano and personal style. By age 20, he had left Philadelphia to work and record with Dizzy Gillespie, then Yusef Lateef, Stan Getz, the Monk-inspired quartet Sphere, and KB’s own groups including Canta Brasil. In 2010 the NEA named him a Jazz Master. We’ll celebrate his birthday with his current duo with bassist Dave Holland at the Kennedy Center, and solo Barron from last summer’s Caramoor Festival.
