Enjoy this soulful performance of one of my favorite jazz pianists: Michel Petrucciani. When I started the Overland Jazz Quartet, I knew that I had a powerhouse of talented colleagues culminating on the stage, but I had no idea that we would make music as beautiful as this, with a true homage to the composer. Shout out to Adam Cohen, Sandro Feliciano, and Luis Mascaro. The sum is definitely greater than the parts!
