Jersey Jazz Interview with David Kikoski

at The Django

We are thrilled to have incredible pianist Dave Kikoski, who has been a member of the Mingus Big Band for 20 years, live at The Django.


‘For many of those years, the band played on Monday nights at The Jazz Standard, which closed during the pandemic. “We played at the Drom in July for the first time since March 2020,” Kikoski said. Now the band has taken up residency at the downtown club, The Django, where it appears every Tuesday night. On September 25, Kikoski performed with 2022 NEA Jazz Master, drummer Billy Hart, at the Montclair Jazz Festival’s Grand Finale, and, in November, he and guitarist Peter Bernstein released an album, Orange Hours, on the French label, LP345 Record.’ — Schaen Fox
