Kenny Werner has been described as “one of jazz’s unsung heroes”, yet the breadth and depth of his award winning achievements and influence, both in playing and education is truly impressive. His prolific output of compositions, recordings and publications continue to impact audiences around the world. With over thirty of his own trio albums and playing with some of the world’s greatest players, including Charles Mingus, Joe Lovano and Lee Konitz, as well as teaching contemporary master Brad Meldhau, Falmouth-Yamaha Jazz Summer School is so happy to be home to Kenny’s amazing playing and teaching gifts for a week!

Quincy Jones

“a pianist who tempers fearsome technique with a questing spiritualism”
The New York Times

“the master of the pure, the immensely subtle, in its most direct expression.” Brad Mehldau’s teacher brings the art of poise and lucidity to a very high level” Alain Gerber and So Jazz
