Billy Childs
Dates:Friday, February 05, 2016
Title:Billy Childs
Description:Pianist and composer Billy Childs received a 2015 Grammy nomination for best jazz vocal album for his Map to the Treasure: Reimagining Laura Nyro. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Nyro died before her 50th birthday. But the Bronx-born singer, songwriter, and pianist—whose soulful music was recorded by artists such as Barbra Streisand, The Fifth Dimension, and Three Dog Night—had a significant influence on an array of music makers who followed her. Childs, who’s earned four Grammys and a Guggenheim Fellowship, makes his Center for the Performing Arts debut in a concert featuring music from the Nyro album, which included guest artists Yo-Yo Ma, Esperanza Spalding, Alison Krauss, Shawn Colvin, Chris Botti, Becca Stevens, and others. Stevens, a “Björk-meets-Joni [Mitchell] singer-songwriter” (jazzwisemagazine.com) who performed with pianist Taylor Eigsti in 2010 at Schwab, and Alicia Olatuja, who dazzled millions with her solo during the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir’s rendition of “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” at the 2013 presidential inauguration, join Childs for the Schwab Auditorium performance.
