    We already love Cyrus. See what others say:

    Time Magazine“What makes Chestnut the best jazz pianist of his generation is a willingness to abandon notes and play space.”

    New York TimesCyrus Chestnut’s particular brand of crisp articulation and blues-inflected harmony evokes another era…what makes his music fly is the complete security in his style and the charisma of a star”

    JazzIs“…gospel-raised, technically sumptuous…Chestnut’s light touch and sauntering swing are captivating. His creative ebullience and in-the-moment spontaneity grab your attention throughout every moment.”

    DownbeatChestnut shows what pervasive spontaneity and deep swing rhythm are all about… He remains, at heart, a jazz traditionalist, drawing upon the back-to-basics of blues- with a  gospel-tinged vocabulary”

    All About JazzCyrus's Art Tatum-esque single-note lines sound as if three hands are playing. His diverse concert repertoire is fueled from start to finish by elegant invention and swinging buoyancy.”

    Jazz Weekly“When Cyrus plays, the church is in session.”

    Come join a hip revival meeting!!!
