Zaccai Curtis returns to @exuberance to commence our fourth season of piano jazz salons.

He’s played separate salons here with Darryl Yokley, Ralph Peterson and with brother Luques Curtis. This time Zaccai leads his own ensemble with a concept he calls “Projection”— mixing R&B and jazz with elements of AfroCuban music. Zaccai takes inspiration for this concept from Idris Muhammad, Willie Bobo, Lonnie Liston Smith and Donald Harrison. Rest assured we’ll be hearing Zaccai’s sonic imprint.

An inventive and percussive pianist, Zaccai is a brilliant composer and arranger, as evidenced by the spectacular Completion of Proof. He is cofounder of the Truth Revolution recording collective and recipient of a 2017 New Jazz Works grant from Chamber Music America. He performs regularly with Donald Harrison, Cindy Blackman Santana, Eddie Palmieri, Christian Scott, Ralph Peterson, T.K. Blue, Brian Lynch, Ray Vega and Eric Person among others....
