Sullivan Fortner

Filmed at the Steinway piano factory in New York, the rising star jazz pianist plays his original compositions and standards from the American Songbook in a new, exclusive DACAMERA stream followed by a live talk back with the artist.

For the past decade, New Orleans native Sullivan Fortner has been garnering praise for his talents as a pianist, composer and band leader. The Grammy Award-winner received international praise as both key player and producer for his collaborative work on The Window with vocalist Cecile McLorin Salvant. His recordings as a leader are Moments Preserved and Aria. In 2019, Fortner won Rising Star-Piano and Rising Star Jazz Artist in the DownBeat Critics Poll.

“His fundamentals as a player could hardly be stronger, and his instincts as a composer and bandleader are almost startlingly mature.” – The New York Times
