November to Remember with internationally acclaimed pianist and composer: Jazz, Boogie Woogie and Blues

Posted by CotoBlogzz

Leavenworth, WA – The Icicle Creek announced that Washington’s own internationally acclaimed pianist and composer Scott Cossu is scheduled to perform with his latest trio at the Icicle Creek Center for the Arts on Saturday, November 5, 7:30 PM.

Best known for his releases on Windham Hill Records, Cossu was at the forefront of the new age music scene in the 1980’s, while not restricted  to just one genre , as he often incorporates elements of jazz, blues, and fusion into his playing.

Labeled by some as folk piano, others as hard jazz, Cossu describes his playing as, “equally influenced by Chopin and Pink Floyd,” resulting in a live concert experience not to be missed! Cossu’s recordings have been known to top the charts, and The Seattle Times has compared him to jazz great Keith Jarrett.

Cossu’s performances artfully blend new-age and jazz and even venture into boogie-woogie and blues. His current trio members include long time collaborators— former Wenatchee resident, Ann Lindquist on flute, and T.J. Morris on percussion.
