The Pittson Family Band brings together three accomplished performers with a forward-looking view into the future of jazz music. Vocalist Suzanne Pittson is widely acclaimed for her groundbreaking albums of the music of John Coltrane and Freddie Hubbard. Multi-keyboardist Jeff Pittson brings solid skills honed thru playing with such artists as Maynard Ferguson, Ruth Brown, Larry Coryell and many others. Evan Pittson presents a modern direction for the post-Coltrane language on the Electric Viola, with influences including Jean-Luc Ponty and Michael Brecker. The Pittson Family Band presents an eclectic array of material that explores a diverse spectrum of sonic colors.
