Monash Sessions: Kenny Werner
In August 2014 The Sir Zelman Cowen School of Music at Monash University hosted American jazz pianist Kenny Werner as part of its Artist in Residency program.
According to Associate Professor Rob Burke, “Werner bought a ‘New York intensity’ to this performance. With complexity in compositions and rhythms, he pushed our students to perform at the edge of their ability and creative powers”.
What resulted is this album, a continuation of excellence demonstrated throughout the entire Monash Sessions series.
