Jon Snell / Chris Merz Duo

“Five years after recording their live debut album Vu Jà Dé, NYC-based jazz pianist Jon Snell, originally from Iowa, returns to the Midwest to present a series of duo concerts with former teacher/mentor Chris Merz (saxophonist & Director of Jazz Studies, University of Northern Iowa). Exploring the creative and intimate possibilities that the duo environment offers, Snell and Merz navigate this setting using their own original compositions as a launching pad for further discovery.”
