Cyrus Chestnut (born January 17, 1963) is an American jazz pianist, composer and producer.
In 2006, Josh Tyrangiel, music critic for Time Magazine, wrote: "What makes Chestnut the best jazz pianist of his generation
is a willingness to abandon notes and play space." Chestnut enjoys mixing styles and resists being typecast in any one niche,
though his gospel sound is apparent on a number of his recordings.
