Benny Lackner

Born in Berlin, Benny Lackner moved to California at the age of 13. He received his BFA from the California Institute of the Arts under the direction of Charlie Haden. In 1997 and 1998, he studied privately with his mentor, pianist Brad Mehldau. He has performed at numerous jazz festivals including the North Sea Jazz Festival, Montreux and Monterey. He has worked with artists such as the late Billy Higgins, Marc Ribot, Brad Shepik, Pheeroan akLaff and is now residing in Brooklyn and Berlin where is working with his international touring trio and as a sideman and composer.

Although he is adept in the use of plugged-in keyboards, for his Yardbird Suite debut, Lackner will present an evening of solo piano music. The performance will include a blend of originals and rearranged songs of the current generation in jazz mode. The reharmonizations of the familiar give the traditional piano form a new identity and purpose in which Lackner fuses intensity with unintrusive virtuosity.

"Benny Lackner has a distinctive compositional voice that sounds lucid and fresh."
-- Brad Mehldau
