Pianist Helen Sung Live At The Blue Note

From her bio:
An award-winning classical pianist before jazz intervened...,  Houston native Helen Sung is blazing her own path. A Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz Performance graduate, she went on to win the Kennedy Center's Mary Lou Williams Jazz Piano Competition and is now enchanting listeners everywhere with an imaginative, modern artistry that thoroughly captivates: her music swings, it's funky, intelligent, and utterly unique.

In addition to her first-rate albums and band, Sung currently appears with fine ensembles including the Mingus Big Band, T.S.Monk, and Terri Lyne Carrington's Grammy-winning Mosaic Project. Take the journey with this rising artist named by Wynton Marsalis as one of his 2011 "Who's Got Next: Jazz Musicians to Watch"!
