Jean-Michel Pilc

When: Sat., Jan. 21, 8 p.m. 2017

“There may be no more diverse, unpredictable jazz piano player, song to song, than Jean-Michel Pilc,” writes JazzTimes. His ability to work outside of the box propelled the self-taught music man’s 2015 release Composing, a work of collaborative improvisation. Joined by percussionist Marilyn Mazur and bassist Mads Vinding, Pilc takes listeners on a journey through what Vinding describes in the album’s liner notes as “compositions in real time.” The Paris-born pianist showcases his skills as both an improviser and a technical virtuoso during a solo concert at Mahaney Center for the Arts as part of the Middlebury College Performing Arts Series.

Price: $6-25.
