Grammy Award-winning jazz pianist and DownBeat “Rising Star” Sullivan Fortner ’08 checks in with Oberlin voice professor La Tanya Hall and guitar professor Bobby Ferrazza. Their discussion touches on life as jazz musicians in the era of COVID-19, collaborations with Oberlin students, and more. We’ll also delve into never-before-seen footage from the Oberlin Sonny Rollins Jazz Ensemble’s debut performance—with Fortner sharing keyboard duties!—from their Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola in January 2019.
