I think it is always special to perform Jazz music with piano. The low pitch from piano is always a special element for Jazz. The sound from the piano is like surrounding the whole environment with a deep voice of blues. It makes audiences to lose their own conscious and start diving into the music.
Furthermore, wine lover could not miss out this event also. During Krannert Uncorked, there will be new wine and wine samples offer at the bar next to Stage 5. Featured wines are also served at half price. It is absolutely a great opportunity for you to relax and enjoy music after a exhausting day.
I really enjoyed this event a lot. I got to enjoy music and wine during the performance. Jim Pryor, his piano skills were outstanding, and there was a mystery attractive force in it. Moreover, the events from Stage 5 are always free. It was a really fantastic experience with bunch of people enjoying music together.
