CL Critic Hal Horowitz Recommends: Atlanta’s Alterman has been spreading his soulful piano magic around the country lately. Heavily influenced by his late friend Ramsey Lewis, Alterman combines R&B, pop, blues and jazz into a jubilant concoction that displays his quick fingers and sheer joy of playing. Maybe he’ll even do a version of “The In Crowd” if pressed. — HH

From the venue:

Atlanta native Joe Alterman expresses a certain upbeat naivete, with a broad smile and bright eyes that make you feel welcome. One would not guess that this is a man hailed by greats; Ramsey Lewis describes his piano playing as 'a joy to behold', Les McCann states 'As a man and musician he is already a giant'. Journalist Nat Hentoff championed three of Alterman's albums, as well as his writing (Joe wrote liner notes to three Wynton Marsalis/JALC albums, calling one of Joe's columns "one of the very best pieces on the essence of jazz, the spirit of jazz, that I've ever read, and I'm not exaggerating."
