What do Stevie Wonder, Jon Batiste, Gregory Porter and Esperanza Spalding have in common? They all call Tivon Pennicott when they need a tenor player whose sound “has a romantic vibe” and “is sweet to listen to, like drinking warm honey” (All About Jazz). This three-time Grammy® Award-winner’s evolving style is rooted in the soulful, sophisticated foundation for groove he honed at church. Joined by drummer Kenneth Salters, a fixture on Manhattan’s West Village independent jazz scene, you won’t want to miss Pennicott’s Annenberg Center debut.
This is an original, live event performed on our stage and streamed online. It will include an interactive Q&A with the performers. Visit our FAQs page for additional details.
