“What makes Chestnut the best jazz pianist of his generation is a willingness to abandon notes and play space,” said Time Magazine. Chestnut reached for the piano before he could walk and by age nine was the church pianist at Mt. Calvary Star Baptist Church in Baltimore, Maryland. Chestnut’s improvisational skills and unique jazz-gospel and bop style is credited to his early years playing in church. Chestnut continually tours, playing live at jazz festivals around the world as well as clubs and concert halls.
