A hugely gifted pianist, composer and bandleader, Randy Weston is among the most highly regarded jazz musicians still active. A great admirer, esteemed fellow keys player Marian McPartland OBE, hailed him "one of the world's great visionary pianists and composers." With nods to Duke Ellington and Thelonious Monk, Weston is well known for his distinctive and unique sound, one able to induce the full spectrum of emotion in the listener via his rhythmic, percussive technique. Born 6th April 1926 in Brooklyn, New York, his Jamaican parents owned a restaurant in the borough. Weston began taking classical piano and dance lessons at an early age, and when his father Frank enrolled him at the highly-reputable Boys High School in Bedford-Stuyvesant, the young pianist began studying under Professor Atwell - a teacher who allowed him to explore music outside the classical genre.
