MAM After Hours: Art Meets Jazz

Breakout Jazz Phenom Isaiah J. Thompson

Presented in partnership with MAM’s African American Cultural Committee


Reignite your passion for jazz with MAM’s 4th Annual Art Meets Jazz, featuring rising star jazz pianist and composer, Isaiah J. Thompson! As a young artist on the verge of international stardom, Thompson is poised to engage the world of Jazz. A graduate of Julliard with roots in West Orange, Thompson developed his early talent for Jazz at NJPAC Jazz for Teens and Jazz House Kids.

Thompson received the 2018 Lincoln Center Emerging Artist Award and has performed with many jazz legends, including former Art Meets Jazz performer Steve Turre, Christian McBride, John Pizzarelli, and Buster Williams. He is an advocate for diversity in his field and community. Newark’s First Lady of Jazz, Dorthaan Kirk will introduce Thompson and friends for this extraordinary evening at MAM.
