Billy and his band, including the exceptional vocalists Alicia Olatuja and Kate McGarry, will revisit the 2014 Sony Masterworks album, “Map to the Treasure: Reimagining Laura Nyro”.

2 shows per night: 7:30pm and 9:30pm
Tickets: $ 35.00 / Age All Ages

In his Rolling Stone review on September 9, 2014, Dave DiMartino wrote: “This polished product, the work of jazz pianist Billy Childs, spotlights many of Nyro’s best songs via Childs’ creative orchestrations and the marvelous guest performers Highly recommended.”

Childs began his remarkable career as an apprentice musician with the bands of Freddie Hubbard and J.J. Johnson in the late Seventies and early Eighties. In 1988, he launched his recording career as a leader with Take for Example, This... the first of his 4 critically acclaimed albums for Windham Hill Jazz.

Billy Childs latest album, Rebirth (Mack Avenue), marks a return to the snaking quickfire hardbop Childs played in the 70s, albeit infused with all the music he has visited so intelligently since its ultra-sophisticated, gracefully crafted jazz, but full of dynamism. (John Fordham, The Guardian, 5.18.2017)
