Master jazz pianist Claudio Cojaniz (Italy) returns to Pittsburgh for a very special evening of collaborations with Oliver Lake.
Saxophonist, poet, and composer Oliver Lake has been connected to City of Asylum since our beginning days. It’s Oliver who improvised with our first writer-in-residence Huang Xiang, giving life to our Jazz Poetry Festival. And Oliver has performed in Jazz Poetry every year until 2020.
Oliver is one of the preeminent saxophonists in the progressive jazz scene and his artistic vision remains daring, unique, and uncompromising. As we celebrate the return of a fully in person Jazz Poetry, we welcome Oliver back to Pittsburgh and honor his friendship and his contributions to City of Asylum’s history.
Following a set from the Claudio Cojaniz trio, Oliver will join the stage, together performing Oliver’s original compositions from his renowned Trio 3. This is a unique evening of true international and cross-cultural exchange.
