Jahari Stampley Trio

Aug 10, Saturday - 1pm
Montgomery Theater Stage

Winner of the 2023 Herbie Hancock Institute of Jazz International Piano Competition, Jahari Stampley has been hailed by the jazz legend himself as a “bold new voice.” His vigorous athleticism, juxtaposed with playing of poetic delicacy, has astounded audiences from coast to coast.

Rather than coming as a surprise, the pianist’s rapid ascendance has been widely foretold. By the age of 18 he’d made ardent fans of Yebba, Jill Scott, Robert Glasper, Cory Henry and Jacob Collier. Bass legend Stanley Clarke took him on the road, and bass star Derrick Hodge featured Stampley on his 2020 Blue Note Records album Color of Noise

He was dubbed 2023 Chicagoan of the Year in Jazz and given the 2023 Chicago Youth Symphony Alumni Award, the first non-classical musician to receive the honor. Stampley’s debut album, Still Listening, hit No. 1 on Apple iTunes upon its release, and his original compositions from the project have been arranged for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. 

Stampley’s trio features Miguel Russell, a 21-year-old drummer/producer from South Florida, and Chicago saxophonist and bassist D-Erania Stampley, a revered educator and highly regarded improviser who is also the pianist’s mother.
