Exodus To Jazz is pleased to announce the return of Johnny O’Neal to perform his popular “Holiday Tribute to Nat King Cole” on Thursday, December 13, 2018 at Anthology, 336 East Avenue.
O’Neal opened the 2018 Exodus To Jazz season with a rousing performance in February. Since that concert he has maintained a busy schedule buoyed by the popularity of his latest CD – “In The Moment”.
As a member in several stellar groups, O’Neal is connected to many jazz pioneers; his piano playing reflects the influences of idols Oscar Peterson and Art Tatum. He has shaped his own signature style…very swinging and an incomparable melodic competence with both hands. Combined with his soulful vocal renditions, O’Neal is one of the most entertaining artists on the international jazz scene today.
