Cameron Graves

Thursday, September 26, 2019 / 7:30 pm EDT

$20 – $26

“His contrastingly romantic and ardent chord-work suggest what Rachmaninoff might have sounded like if he’d played in a contemporary fusion band.” — The Guardian

Hailed by Rolling Stone as “the house pianist for the party at the end of the universe,” Cameron Graves is revitalizing funk, jazz, soul and fusion with kaleidoscopic, kinetic energy. After cutting his teeth on Chopin, Coltrane and Van Halen, Graves co-founded L.A.’s West Coast Get Down (WCGD) alongside the supernova saxophone of Kamasi Washington. Known as the Wu-Tang Clan of jazz, the WCGD collective is prolific when united or untethered. Graves’ 2017 debut album, Planetary Prince, emerged from a marathon WCGD recording session. Whether turning Ellington on its ear or achieving supersonic speeds typically reserved for prog rock and metal, Graves transposes a fretboard ferocity and fluidity to 88 keys—music to quicken your pulse as easily as it broadens your consciousness.
