“A treasured longtime figure on the New York jazz scene, pianist John Chin is a prolific composer and heavy-duty improviser who pulls real magic out of his eclectic bag… With a deft, light touch, Chin goes from speedy, Tatum-esque runs… to bruisingly intimate reflections that poke at the harmonic, melodic, and contrapuntal possibilities of his chosen repertoire.” – LA Weekly


Pianist John Chin makes his Dizzy’s Club debut as a bandleader, bringing his quintet and a selection of tunes drawn from his wonderfully diverse album Fifth. This Kenny Barron mentee employs a broad range of jazz, blues, pop, and Western classical influences as a spectrum, rather than reserving them for pre-determined contexts, giving each of his performances a real dynamism and emotional sincerity. Dreamy electric keyboard components add to a depth and space already masterfully wielded. Come along for the ride during the Dizzy’s Club premiere of the John Chin Quintet.
