Two voices celebrating African roots, through the lens of Ellington. Tonight we showcase Brooklyn born Randy Weston, and Cape Town born Abdullah Ibrahim(formerly Dollar Brand). Both are solo piano specialists, both were deeply influenced by Ellington and Monk, and both have a deep connection to Africa in their music and their lives. 

The Piano Starts Here series highlights the work of some of the most prolific and talented composers and pianists to have ever tackled the instrument. Each of the performances brings together Seattle’s finest pianists to perform the works of the artist selected for that evening on the Royal Room's Steinway B grand piano.
