M&T Concert Series: Walter Kemp 3oh @ Villa Maria College, Recital Hall | Buffalo | New York | United States

Walter’s father, a classical and gospel composer, sparked Walter’s early interest in the piano. Childhood experiences, including seeing and hearing his father perform his compositions at Carnegie Hall, opened Kemp’s eyes to a world of music. He soon began studying classical piano, where he mastered fundamentals. After a brief interest in drums, he gravitated toward jazz piano. Kemp, lead composer and pianist for the Walter Kemp 3oh!, has won widespread critical acclaim for his classic and compelling compositions which experiment with traditional chord progressions with inventive finesse. As the winner of numerous awards with his international touring and recording projects, he has collaborated with various musical greats like Juini Booth and Rey Scott, of Sun-Ra’s Arkestra, Bobby Militello, (Dave Brubeck), and Sabu Adeyola (Ahmad Jamal). As a highly-sought professional in the progressive music scene, Walter is the youngest musician, in more than three decades, to serve as Artistic Director for the CMC Jazz Festival, housed at the Historic Colored Musician’s Club—the oldest existing jazz member club of its kind. He also appears in a permanent museum installation.
