Kris Bowers – Interlochen Arts Festival – July 25, 2016
Kris Bowers, with his full band, will perform selections from Heroes + Misfits, his debut recording on Concord Jazz. Released in March 2014, Heroes + Misfits opened at No. 1 on the iTunes jazz charts and to critical acclaim.
A Juilliard-trained jazz pianist, Bowers has never been afraid to step outside the genre’s traditional boundaries to create other forms of music. He performed on Watch the Throne, the 2011 collaborative album by hip-hop artists Jay-Z and Kanye West, and has scored a diverse range of documentaries and other works, including choreographer Kyle Abraham’s “Absent Matter,” written in collaboration with Otis Brown III.
