NYC-based, German-born, Italian pianist Antonio Ciacca brings his bebop- and gospel-influenced styles to Dizzy’s for a one-night stand, along with a stellar cast of supporting musicians. A longtime sideman and collaborator with greats like Art Farmer, Lee Konitz, James Moody, Dave Liebman, and Benny Golson, Ciacca now demonstrates his considerable skill as a leader. Currently the Business of Jazz professor at The Juilliard School, Ciacca knows the world of professional jazz performance and is well-equipped to show audiences how it’s done.
