After contributing seven decades of musical direction and genius, Randy Weston remains one of the world's foremost pianists and composers today, a true innovator and visionary. Africa is at the core of Weston’s music and spirituality. He has traversed the continent on a continuous quest to learn about its musical traditions, produced its first major jazz festival, and lived for years in Morocco. Encompassing the vast rhythmic heritage of Africa, his global creations musically continue to inform and inspire. Over the years, he has garnered numerous accolades, including two Grammy Award nominations, an NEA Jazz Masters Fellowship, and a 2014 Doris Duke Award.

A Q&A with the artists will follow the performance.
