KEYBOARD SENSATION LUCA MENDOZA & HIS COLLECTIVE

Here for TWO NIGHTS ONLY, 20 year-old piano sensation Luca Mendoza is downstairs at Black Cat playing with his collective. His compositions are truly unique, blending influences anywhere from Thelonious Monk, to Meshuggah, to James Blake. He is an award-winning pianist and composer who is quickly rising in the U.S. jazz scene. He is a Los Angeles Philharmonic Composer Fellow and currently Downbeat Magazine’s Best College Soloist.

Joined by Bay Area-born bassist Logan Kane and Canadian drummer Anthony Fung, this trio fuses improvised music of all kinds, including jazz, classical, Afro-Cuban, punk, and hip-hop. Book your tickets now for your chance to see this rising star in person!
