Part of Hancher's Golden Anniversary Season

Pianist Isaiah J. Thompson garnered the 2018 Lincoln Center Emerging Artist Award and earned second place in the Thelonious Monk Competition that same year.

“Thompson, still in his early 20s, displays a serious understanding of past masters, with a hard-swinging rhythmic approach and a harmonic palette informed by jazz, gospel, and blues.” —DownBeat
