JAZZ @ The CAM: Lenore Raphael Quartet

Thursday, 12/6/2018
6:30PM-8:00PM  
Jazz @ The CAM season seven sensation Lenore Raphael (www.lenoreraphael.com) returns to the series! As a trio Raphael performed the series’ first December concert in 2016, upping the concerts from seven to eight per season. For season nine she has gone from a trio to a quartet: Lenore Raphael - piano, Steve Hobbs – vibraphone, Ben Palmer – bass, and Manny Santos - drums. Critics, jazz hosts and jazz lovers agree that she is one of the most swinging mainstream pianists today. A jazz pianist/Steinway Artist, composer and jazz teacher who resides in New York City and the Raleigh-Durham area, Raphael is a classically trained bebop pianist who has been influenced greatly by Art Tatum, Oscar Peterson, Bud Powell, Bill Evans and more, and has created her own recognizable style.

As a performer, Raphael has gotten rave reviews and standing ovations at such prestigious venues as Jazz At Lincoln Center, Birdland, Ronnie Scott’s in London as well as numerous jazz festivals in New York City and around the world.
