Pianist, composer, Berklee College of Music professor and former Gary Burton sideman Vadim Neselovskyi kicks off the Ridgeway Presents series with a stellar trio performance featuring new compositions, original arrangements and select solo piano pieces. A Ukrainian-born pianist, Vadim was classically trained at conservatories in his native Odessa and in Germany; honed his jazz chops on German jazz stages and at Berklee College of Music; and undertook his apprenticeship around the world as a member of master vibraphonist Gary Burton’s Next Generation Quintet. Burton, who included a number of Neselovskyi compositions in his repertoire, called him “a true genius,” noting “I don’t think I have ever met an improviser who has more surprises in store...” Discover a new jazz voice whose “pianistic power station” displays “virtuosity coupled with passion and soul” (Neue Musik Zeitung).
As part of the Ridgeway Presents program, local young musicians will have the opportunity to work directly with Vadim and present their work during the first of the performance.
The Ridgeway Arts Presents program has both a national and local focus, fully integrated with its educational outreach programs. The programs focuses on presenting high profile artists in the Bay Area as well as providing young musicians access to educational opportunists with these artists.
Tickets are $15 in advance, $18 at the door. $10 for students with valid student ID cards (STUDENT TICKETS ARE ONLY AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR).
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
