Jazz artist Jonathan Batiste is best known for coming from the Batiste musical family that traces lengthy lineage of several generations. Based in Louisiana, he started playing music from a very young age and in 2012 was listed among thirty of the world's most influential people under thirty. Being a musician, educator, bandleader and entertainer, he has worked with musicians from a variety of genres and has also released his own recording, alongside performing in more than forty countries. He has also made appearances on TV and in films. Only recently, the young maestro was appointed the position of Associate Artistic Director at Harlem's National Jazz Museum, and tours regularly with his band called Stay Human. His better known records include albums Times in New Orleans and Live in NYC: At Rubin Museum of Arts, and the EPs In the Night, The Amazing Jon Batiste, and My NY Jonathan Batiste & Stay Human Band.
Batiste has established quite a reputation for the interactive aspects of his shows, making Jonathan Batiste tickets a much sought-after treat among jazz devotees.
Jonathan Batiste issued one of his first couple of CDs as its leader, which were called Times in New Orleans that included New Orleans musicians Christian Scott, Jason Marsalis and Donald Harrison Jr. By that time had gained enough attention, being a very talented young musician with great potential. In 2004, he was already a member of NOCCA, and soon became a young performer, following which he studied at NYC's prestigious Julliard School. Two years later, he won the Movado Future Legends Award and was the only one to win this honor for jazz. Before being awarded, he had released his second record CD called Live in NYC: At Rubin Museum of Arts. By the end of that year, he had gained prominence as a featured performer in the US, Paris, Spain, Lisbon, London, and South Africa. By 2007, he was on his way to debuting at the internationally renowned Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, performing and well as producing his own show, in addition to which he conducted music masters/clinic workshops and classes al over Holland among its inner city schools alongside its underprivileged neighborhoods.
In 2005, Batiste started playing around the NYC music scene very regularly with his three-member band comprising of drummer Joe Saylor and bassist Phil Kuehn. The artists first met in 2004, and some years later, Batiste brought in alto saxophonist Eddie Barbash, followed by tuba-player Ibanda Ruhumbika. Since the formation of his own band, he has toured extensively in the past few years. Batiste and his bandmates, all of whom attended Julliard, are famous particularly for engaging with audiences in order to better connect with them while making them appreciate the art of live performances. Whether on tour or while they are on time off, they are often seen playing in rather non-traditional venues and carrying out impromptu demonstrations in the streets that Batiste and his band have called 'Love Riots'. The band takes its unusual moniker from their belief that human interaction of live musical performances can greatly uplift humanity in this 'tune out/plug in' nature of our present day society.
Beginning in 2008, Jonathan Batiste was featured as a member of the NBA All-Star Game's Halftime show among big names like Davell Crawford, Ivan Neville, Art Neville, Ellis Marsalis, Dr. John, Harry Connick Jr. and Allen Toussaint. By the following year, he had issued two CDs and EPs and played in more than forty countries. At the time, he added one new instrument to his forte in addition to the piano; the melodica, which he adopted among his signatures, and has since helped to popularize it. Batiste has performed and recorded with numerous artists including Mark O' Connor, Roy Hargrove, Abbey Lincoln, Derek Trucks, Cassandra Wilson, Harry Connick Jr., Judith Hill, Aloe Blacc, Lenny Kravitz, Prince, Ellis Marsalis, Wynton Marsalis and Soul Rebels Brass Band. His forthcoming string of shows are not to be missed, so make sure to book your Jonathan Batiste tickets, jazz up and be there.
