Billy Childs makes his first stop at Jaqua Concert Hall with his quartet featuring special guest Sean Jones on tour in support of his newest release The Winds of Change (Mack Avenue Records: March 17, 2023). On The Winds of Change, the 5-time GRAMMY® Award-winning pianist/composer offers 5 brand new original compositions alongside exhilarating arrangements of Kenny Barron’s “The Black Angel” and Chick Corea’s “Crystal Silence”. “Chick was a dear friend of mine,” Childs notes. “His music brings tears to my eyes. I wanted to do a tribute to him. It’s one of his most beautiful compositions. Ambrose nailed the melody on it, and Scott takes a beautiful solo.”
Childs describes the experience of making The Winds of Change as a peak artistic experience. “When you do things that are intuitive, that aren’t encumbered by too much thought but just what feels right, then you’re getting in tune with something that’s larger than just four guys playing music. That’s what we were going for.”
Billy Childs on piano, Sean Jones on trumpet, Hans Glawischnig on bass, and Christian Euman on drums.
