After Sarah Jane Cion’s first Westport engagement at the Post in July people were clamoring for a return engagement…
We were finally able to secure a date, and what a night it will be!
An award winning pianist (1st Place Winner of the 17th Annual Great American Jazz Piano Competition) and thoughtful composer, Sarah invites us into her unique world that’s uniquely sensitive and oh, so swinging! Most recently, her songs “Cat in the Hat” and “Golden Song” were featured respectively in Warner Bros. Pictures’ The Mule in 2018 and Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Golden Song in Thor: The Dark World.The music of Sarah Jane Cion is unapologetically pretty. It proceeds from her poetic vision, warm and elegiac, and her right hand takes us with her as it climbs. —Thomas Conrad, DOWNBEAT
Sarah Jane Cion is a heavyweight. —Johnny Mandel RESERVE NOW
