Baltimore-born Cyrus Chestnut is not an easy pianist to describe. He is technically brilliant but when he plays, it often sounds as if technique is not his main concern. He seems willing to abandon it for a feeling he is trying (even dying) to express. Chestnut is the type who would prefer to say something badly that he wants to say, then say well something that he does not want to say. Nevertheless, one always admires the way he handles a piano. It is like watching an experienced sailor on a yacht. He knows all of the ropes, all of the tricks, but prefers to use his instincts rather than maps. The boat is the same but the seas of his sounds are constantly changing. CM
