Sullivan Fortner and Kyle Athayde
Grammy award winning pianist with Bay Area native on vibraphone
Grammy award winning pianist Sullivan Fortner plays a second night at the piano store, joined by Bay Area native and multi-instrumentalist Kyle Athayde on vibraphone for another duo performance.
For the past decade, Sullivan Fortner has been stretching deep-rooted talents as a pianist, composer, band leader and uncompromising individualist. The GRAMMY Award-winning artist received international praise as both key player and producer for his collaborative work on The Window (Mack Avenue, 2018), alongside multi-GRAMMY winner, vocalist-composer Cecile McLorin Salvant.
As a solo leader, he has released Moments Preserved (Decca, 2018) and Aria (Impulse!, 2015) to critical acclaim, and he’s only getting started. This past year, Fortner earned recognition in multiple DownBeat Critics Poll categories, winning first place in Rising Star Piano and Rising Star Jazz Artist.
Kyle Athayde is a San Francisco Bay Area based composer, arranger, performer, teacher, and bandleader. A native of Orinda, California, Kyle primarily plays vibraphone, piano, trumpet, and drums, as well as bongo, congas, timbales, string bass, bass clarinet, sousaphone, and vocal percussion.
He is the leader, conductor, and writer for the San Francisco/New York based big band, “Kyle Athayde Dance Party”, a group acclaimed for its versatility in the wide scope of styles it performs. He also plays keyboard, trumpet, and percussion for the Bay Area collective, Jazz Mafia.
