Benito Juárez, Mexico
Christian Sands es originario de Connecticut, pertenece a la generación de las jóvenes promesas contemporáneas del jazz. A los 4 años empezó a tomar clases de piano. De adolescente, su mentor -el legendario pianista, Billy Taylor-, lo invitó colaborar en uno de los sets que Taylor interpretó en el Kennedy Center. Graduado de la Manhattan School of Music. Participó en la banda Inside Straight del bajista Christian McBride con la que realizó giras internacionales. Algunas de las influencias jazzísticas de Sands son el mismo McBride, Wynton Marsalis, el saxofonista y flautista Kenny Garrett, y el pianista Marcus Roberts. Sands ha sido nominado cinco veces al Grammy®. Fue alumno del programa de residencias Betty Carter's Jazz Ahead del Kennedy Center. En 2011, tocó en este centro un concierto-tributo a Billy Taylor, y ahí mismo presentó, el pasado 2017, su más reciente álbum, Reach.

I tried to rate it 5 stars but somehow my screen is only allowing 4 1/2. The performance was honest, honorable and enjoyable. All of his influences/mentors could be heard in his playing while he still manages to develop his own voice. It was even more of a blessing to experience his playing with his brother on drums.
