Description

Pianist/vocalist Johnny O’Neal performs a “Holiday Tribute to Nat King Cole” on Thursday, Dec. 13, 2018 at Anthology, 336 East Ave, Rochester.

Legendary Nate King Cole, best known for songs including “The Christmas Song”, “Mona Lisa” and “Nature Boy”, first came to prominence as a jazz pianist. Introduced as “the best friend a song ever had”, Cole’s legacy is in good hands with O’Neal, arguably “the best friend a jazz audience can have.”

Accompanying O’Neal:

  • Guitarist/vocalist Ilya Lushtak, has been an important part of New York jazz scene for over a decade performing with Hank Jones, Barry Harris, Jimmy Cobb, Cedar Walton to name a few leaders.

  • Bassist Mark Lewandowski, led his trio’s tribute to the great Thomas “Fats” Waller during the 2018 Rochester Jazz Festival. He has performed with a diverse range of leaders including John Surman, Buddy Greco, Wynton Marsalis and Zoe Rahman.

  • Drummer Itay Michor returns with O'Neal following the trio's rousing Feb. performance. Since Dec. 2016 he has propelled the trio's recording and club performances with effective flexibility and range of intensity.
