Blue Note Napa
Napa Valley Jazz Society Presents; The Sullivan Fortner Trio

    Napa Valley Jazz Society Presents

    NVJS is honored to have been included in a limited tour made possible by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.

    Sullivan Fortner has been lauded as one of the top jazz pianists of his generation. His virtuosic technique as a highly sought improviser has won him international praise, including a Grammy. Mr. Fortner’s music embodies the essence of the blues and jazz across all eras. He has performed across the country and throughout the world at such cultural institutions as the New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts, Sweet Lorraine’s and The Jazz Playhouse in New Orleans, Jazz at Lincoln Center and Smalls Jazz Club in New York City. Fortner has appeared at celebrated festivals, including Newport, Monterey and Gillmore Keyboard, among others. In 2019, he brought his band to the historic Village Vanguard for a weeklong engagement reprised in 2020 as a virtual performance during the COVID lockdown.

    Sullivan’s works and his insights have been featured in culturally iconic publications, from The New York Times to The Root. Accolades include the 2015 Cole Porter Fellowship awarded by the American Pianists Association, Leonore Annenberg Arts Fellowship, the 2016 Lincoln Center Award for Emerging Artists and, in 2020, the prestigious Shifting Foundation Grant for artistic career development.
