Snap on 2 & 4 w/ Anthony Belfiglio

Our Friday, September 7 Snap on 2&4 performance features pianist Anthony Belfiglio, presenting his “Hard Bop Tribute Show,” performing repertoire from great hard bop bands like the Cannonball Adderley Quintet, the Horace Silver Quintet, Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers, and more. Joining Anthony for this special concert are Alex Graham – saxophone/flute, Emmanuel Echem – trumpet, Roger Spencer – bass, and Duffy Jackson – drums.

Anthony Belfiglio is a pianist, educator, and composer with a passion for improvisation, enchanting melodies, and rhythmic experimentation.

A solo artist and bandleader, he has released five albums including his recent efforts Songs I Love for People I Love (solo piano), and Sonoroscope (featuring the legendary drummer Danny Gottlieb). In addition, he is the founder and director of the Belmont Faculty Jazz Group.

Anthony has had the good fortune to perform with many legendary jazz artists including Danny Gottlieb, Duffy Jackson, Chester Thompson, Gene Perla, Brian Bromberg, Jeff Coffin, Dave Douglas, Branford Marsalis, Kenny Garrett, and Steve Turré.

Anthony received his music degrees from The University of Texas at Austin, University of Miami, and Temple University. His published dissertation addresses the pedagogy of jazz rhythm, and he has recently completed the book Kenny Kirkland Solo Transcriptions published by The System.

Drawing from such genres as jazz, funk, rock, classical, and Latin music, Anthony views the piano as being “like a puzzle with endless possibilities.” Describing music as “the only thing [he] ever wanted to do,” Anthony uses his diverse musical interests and background to explore new musical territory and reach and inspire new audiences
