Jazz Night with Isaac Wilson
June 10, 2018

7:00 - 9:00 p.m. on the Hill Street Platform

Isaac Wilson is a pianist, keyboardist, and composer. A native of Los Angeles, he began playing the piano at the age of 4, teaching himself to play his favorite songs and piano works by ear. He moved to Boston to attend New England Conservatory of Music, graduating in the spring of 2015, having studied with Fred Hersch, Jason Moran, Ran Blake, and many others. While in Boston, Isaac performed on numerous occasions with saxophone greats Jerry Bergonzi and George Garzone.

A recent recipient of a Master’s Degree from Berklee’s Global Jazz Institute lead by Danilo Pérez, he studied under many Jazz luminaries while attending the one-year program and had a chance to travel, performing at the 2015 Monterey Jazz Festival, the 2016 Panama Jazz Festival, and the 2016 Newport Jazz Festival. That year, he also won first prize at the 2016 Keep an Eye Jazz Awards in Amsterdam as a member of a quintet.

He’s taught clinics around the world, and was on faculty at the inaugural Berklee Newport Jazz Festival Summer High School Program. In 2016, he arranged for piano trio five of composer Conlon Nancarrow’s Studies for Player Piano, highlighting the American composer’s unique contributions and his many connections to Jazz music. Isaac is committed to the exploration the many folkloric musics of the world and the possibilities for bridging Jazz with other genres and processes within the Arts. He performs internationally and in the United States in a wide variety of musical contexts, and his debut trio album, Dis-Connect, was released in February 2018.
