Guest Artist: John Eaton, jazz piano, “Jazz, Blues and Broadway”, Thursday, April 20, 7:30 p.m., Green Center, Thompson Recital Hall

Considered one of the foremost interpreters of American music, John Eaton offers a unique combination of ultra-tasteful jazz and fascinating observations. From shows at smoky jazz clubs to a command performance in the East Room of the White House, he has appeared both as a soloist and with such legendary artists as Zoot Sims, Benny Carter, Clark Terry, and Wild Bill Davison. A featured player at the Kool Jazz Festival and a mainstay of the Smithsonian’s Performing Arts Jazz series, Eaton performs music from the vast treasure trove of American popular song. Thursday’s program includes a selection of solo jazz piano renditions from his album Indiana on Our Minds, featuring the works of two of Indiana’s favorite sons—Cole Porter and Hoagy Carmichael!
