Young Artist Academy Winter Quarter Showcase Featuring Sydney Ranee and Darrius Willrich

Posted by on Wed, Apr 10, 2013 at 2:29 PM

(Royal Room) Darrius Willrich is a local jazz pianist who was trained at Cornish, regularly plays at Vito's, experiments with neo–Stevie Wonder soul, and has a close relationship with the politically conscious quarters of the hiphop community. When it comes to jazz, Willrich always displays a deep grasp of the tradition. To my ears, his piano recalls at certain moments the elegance of Nat King Cole, but with the melodic modernism of Herbie Hancock. One of the reasons we live in cities is to have easy access to the music of jazz professionals like Willrich.
