Ralph Towner is our 2019 honoree. Six very different performers will play their own versions of his compositions and Joel Harrison will interview Towner from the stage. Towner is one of the only improvising players to have focused specifically on the nylon string guitar, and as such has developed a signature language. He combines background in classical, jazz, and folk idioms with uncommon grace. His compositions are gorgeous, lyrical, packed with subtle drama and cagey surprise. His career spans more than forty years. and he is best known as the lead composer, guitarist, and keyboardist for the acoustic jazz ensemble "Oregon." Towner has also had musical collaboration with Gary Burton, John Abercrombie, and Keith Jarrett. His groups, such as Oregon, essentially defined "chamber jazz" before the term existed. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=351199 DROM DROM
