Jazz pianist/composer Billy Childs remains one of the most diversely prolific and acclaimed artists working in music today. Childs’ canon of original compositions and arrangements has garnered him the 2013 Doris Duke Performing Artist Award, a Guggenheim Fellowship (2009), sixteen Grammy nominations, and five Grammy awards, most recently for Best Jazz Instrumental Album (“Rebirth”).
