ONE SHOW ONLY: 7pm. Dr. Zachary Bartholomew is an award-winning jazz pianist, composer, and music educator who maintains an active performance career as one of the most heavily sought-after pianists, accompanists, and sidemen in South Florida. In both 2016 and 2017, he placed as one of the top three finalists in the highly acclaimed Jacksonville Jazz Piano Competition and has since been featured as a performer, composer, and bandleader at various national and international jazz festivals, including the Jacksonville Jazz Festival, Monterey Jazz Festival, Jalisco Jazz Festival, and Festival Miami, among others. Zach’s original music and unique arrangements are inspired by the jazz tradition, but also draw heavily from Afro-Cuban rhythms and modern influences. He and his band are featured on radio broadcasts, concert series, and regionally promoted events at music venues all over Florida, and he performs with professional organizations such as the Sarasota Pops Orchestra, Naples Philharmonic, the Gulf Coast Symphony Jazz Collective, and the Lake Wales Jazz Connection.
In this extraordinary performance, Zach and his trio remember the greatness of jazz pianist and composer Chick Corea.
