A native of New Orleans, Sullivan Fortner was praised as a virtuoso jazz pianist well before he finished high school. He won the 2015 Cole Porter Fellowship from the American Pianists Association, as well as the 2016 Lincoln Center Award for Emerging Artists, and has spent recent years playing with jazz artists as varied as Cécile McLorin Salvant, Fred Hersch and Roy Hargrove, among many others. This solo performance—one of six appearances in his debut season at SMF—highlights Sullivan Fortner’s musical versatility and knowledge of jazz piano across the ages.
