Saturday, May 14th, 2016 - 7:30pm, Harlem Stride: Jazz NOW Kris Bowers at The Gatehouse 150 Convent Avenue at 135th Street. Schooled in jazz and classical music, raised amid old-school R&B and funk at home and the music of the 1990s with his peers, and inspired by the great film composers of recent decades, Kris Bowers is one of the newest and brightest lights on the jazz landscape. A graduate of Juilliard and a winner of the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Piano Competition in 2011, Bowers has since become a Steinway artist, was named one of twelve Artists to Watch by iTunes, released his acclaimed debut album Heroes + Misfits, which opened to No. 1 on the iTunes jazz charts and won Best New Jazz Album at the 2014 Jazz Japan Awards.   More details and online tickets can be found at the Harlem Stage site: LINK
