Christian Sands 100%

With his Grammy-nominated album Be Water, pianist Christian Sands continues to bring a fresh look at the entire language of jazz. On his stunning new album released summer of 2020, Sands takes inspiration from water’s tranquility and power and muses on the possibilities offered by echoing its fluidity and malleability. Just embarking on his 30s, he takes his place as a leader and an emerging jazz force. Sands has already enjoyed a remarkable career trajectory, working with the likes of Gregory Porter, Geri Allen, Esperanza Spalding and so many more. Christian Sands is back in Montreux, six years after his stunning concert with Christian McBride’s Trio in 2015.
