The Melodic Pianist
“…Christian Sands plays with a restrained touch and a rolling command across the entire keyboard.”
– The New York Times
Sophisticated jazz pianist, Christian Sands is currently one of the most in-demand pianists working in jazz. With his stunning new album, Be Water, Sands takes inspiration from water’s tranquility and power and muses on the possibilities offered by echoing its fluidity and malleability. The music of Be Water flows with the mesmerizing tranquility and awesome power of its namesake.
On his most conceptually ambitious album to date, Christian Sands takes heed of Bruce Lee’s wisdom and truly allows his creativity to transform and assume a dazzling variety of forms. With his ten gorgeous and thrilling pieces, Sands alternately conjures the serenity of a sun-dappled lake and the drama of a relentless thunderstorm. Having just turned 32, Sands has already enjoyed a remarkable career trajectory, touring and recording with Christian McBride’s Inside Straight Trio.
