JoAnne Brackeen to perform at Pizza Express Steinway Two Pianos Festival (13-22 March)

Sebastian writes: The headline (and possibly the highlight) of the 2020 Pizza Express Steinway Two Pianos Festival will be a return to London after a significant gap of US pianist JoAnne Brackeen, whose solo style was memorably described by Richard Cook and Brian Morton in their Penguin Guide to Jazz on CD as: “muscular but harmonically limpid”.
