($55 tickets / 10pm set) Fans of Emmet Cohen already know that every Monday night is the time to tune into another episode of “Live at Emmet’s”. These live music events are usually recorded at Emmet’s apartment in NYC, but often are also recorded at events while Emmet travels around the country. We are pleased to have the Tucson Jazz Festival and the Century Room at Hotel Congress to be featured in this live recording event. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to witness history being recorded, and you never know who might show up to “sit-in” with the band.
This is a Special Event and not included with VIP Membership or any other Festival Memberships. NO DISCOUNTS are offered for this event.
BIO - Multifaceted American jazz pianist and composer Emmet Cohen is one of his generation's pivotal figures in music and the related arts. Downbeat praised the "nimble touch, measured stride and warm harmonic vocabulary" he employs to communicate with other musicians and audiences at what he terms "the deepest level of humanity and individuality." Leader of the "Emmet Cohen Trio" and creator of the "Masters Legacy Series," Cohen is an internationally acclaimed jazz artist and dedicated music educator.
Emmet Cohen is the winner of the 2019 American Pianists Awards and the Cole Porter Fellow of the American Pianists Association, and Artist-in-Residence at the University of Indianapolis.

For many years he was Hammond B-3 Organist-in-Residence at Harlem's SMOKE jazz club. During the lockdown he created "Live From Emmet's Place," a
weekly livestream that received millions of internet views worldwide. Cohen is a Mack Avenue artist.
