Pianos in the Park: JazzFest 2014

  • Bobby Lyle: before finding his knack for hammock-ready grooves on the piano, he jammed with Jimi Hendrix, toured with Sly and the Family Stone and George Benson, and played musical director to Bette Midler, Al Jarreau, and Anita Baker
  • Dr. Bill Hurd and the Prime Cut Band: a fixture of the Memphis jazz scene who’s played with the likes of Kirk Whalum and Isaac Hayes, Dr. Hurd blows his alto and soprano saxophone with the finesse of Coltrane when he’s not blowing air in the eyes of patients as a practicing Ophthalmologist
  • Audie Smith: he’s played with Roy Ayers and the Main Ingredient, but is now known for setting the mood with mellow keyboard ambiance in the French Quarter and at his house gig at his parents’ Marmalade Restaurant
  • Tamara Jones Monger: adding some vocal flair to the festival, this chanteuse unleashes a neo-soul voice that packs the wallop of Aretha Franklin and the caress of Nina Simone
  • Andre Miller: although he’s not a musician, artist Andre Miller channels his love of jazz onto his canvas in a showcase of bold and vibrant portraits of players and their instruments
