Jahari Stampley

Jazz piano sensation/impending superstar and winner of 2023’s Herbie Hancock Institute International Piano Competition, Jahari Stampley headlines Jazz Alley for two nights, January 30th & 31st. Chicagoan Stampley’s select dates on the west coast this year have been in California and Washington. But something tells me he’ll be in even more demand, with a couple more shows coming up again in California this summer. He also just won an award in 2023 for Chicagoan of the Year for Jazz from Chicago Tribune. Another kudos is Stampley is the first non-classical artist to be awarded honoree of the Chicago Symphony. Basically he’s just an artist to catch. I also love his X post talking about meeting Herbie Hancock, and a nice side note: the name Jahari means jewel. Totally suitable.
