The University of Toledo Jazz Studies program is proud to present two-time Grammy-winning jazz pianist, ALAN BROADBENT to campus to perform as the guest pianist on its annual Art Tatum Memorial Jazz Scholarship Concert, Tuesday, February 17 at 7 p.m. He will also present a master class earlier the same day (2 p.m.). Both events will be held in the UT Center for Performing Arts Recital Hall.

Broadbent is regarded by the LA Times as “one of the greatest living jazz pianists.” He was pianist and arranger for Woody Herman’s band and was studio pianist for Nelson Riddle, David Rose and Johnny Mandel. He also toured as Natalie Cole’s pianist and won a Grammy for his orchestral arrangement of the hit she performed with her father, “When I Fall in Love.” Broadbent has toured widely in the UK, Europe and the US, and has also arranged music for Paul McCartney and Glenn Frey on their recent releases.

His program will include originals, as well as jazz standards and songs from the Great American Songbook, a canon of the most popular and influential American music of the 20th century.

Tickets to the concert are $10, and $5 for students and seniors 60+. There is no charge for the master class. Concert tickets are available at the door or in advance through the Center for Performing Arts Box Office at www.utoledo.tix.com. The Center for Performing Arts is located at the corner of Towerview W and W Rocket Drive on UT’s main campus. Use the west entrance to campus off Secor Road. Free parking is available in Area 12, the parking lot just across the street from the building.
