AXS.com calls pianist/singer/composer Ariel Pocock “the real deal, a blazing combination of chops, stunning original artistry, and hidden emotional depth.” Whether re-harmonizing the Great American Songbook, dancing on Brazilian turf, or tapping into the music of modern pop masters, she remains a riveting presence.
Ariel’s notable performances as a headliner include the Montreal International Jazz Festival, the Gilmore International Keyboard Festival, the Rochester International Jazz Festival, the Vancouver International Jazz Festival, the 2014 Jazz Cruise, the Tokyo Jazz Festival, the Quebec City International Jazz Festival, the Stanford Jazz Workshop, and many more. Her original compositions and songs draw inspiration from a wide array of sources: Cuban and Brazilian folk music, the Great American Songbook, modern jazz composers such as Chick Corea and Brad Mehldau, and songwriters like Joni Mitchell, Randy Newman, and Paul Simon. Columbus music lovers will discover a new and original voice in jazz during this special Valentine’s Day performance.
