Description

in his career he has earned thirteen Grammy nominations and four Grammy awards. He is also the recipient of Chamber Music America's Composer's Grant, a Doris Duke Performing Artist Award, a Guggenheim Fellowship, a music award from the American Academy of Arts as well as 17 classical music commissions.

Childs recorded and performed with luminaries including J.J. Johnson, Freddie Hubbard, Joe Henderson, Wynton Marsalis, Renee Fleming, Yo Yo Ma, Jack DeJohnette, Dave Holland, Ron Carter and many others too plentiful to mention.

His most recent recording, Map to the Treasure, Reimagining Laura Nyro received two Grammy Awards and featured such artists as Sting and Diane Reeves. Jazz Critic Don Heckman writes: "Words fail in an effort to describe the complexities and the subtleties of Childs's musical imagination which is far-reaching...Childs' works do not simply place genres side by side. Instead they find a common, creative ground reminiscent of Rumi's 'community of spirit.'"

He will be performing with Dayna Stephens (saxophone), Hans Glawischnig (bass) and Ari Hoenig (drums).
