Luke O'Reilly Jazz Bridge in Media! presents pianist Luke Carlos O’Reilly at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Delaware County — 145 West Rose Tree Road in Media, PA — on Wednesday January 16th. Tickets are $10, $5 for students, and are available only at the door. Show time is 7:30.

Columbian native O'Reilly, a graduate of Temple University's Esther Boyer College of Music, is a much sought-after pianist, at home in straight ahead Jazz, Latin, soul and R & B. In the straight-ahead area, O'Reilly has spent considerable road time with artists like Curtis Fuller

among others. Making him especially unique is his fluency with Jazz classics, compositions from the great American songbook and contemporary forms. On his well received CD of last year Living in the Now, O'Reilly effectively and inventively combined elements of Jazz, Latin, soul and spoken word poetry.
