About the artist:
Justin Stanton is a keyboardist and trumpet player based in New York, but, since the pandemic, has been living in Lisbon with his girlfriend Gisela and her two cats, Rosinha and Feijāo. During the quarantine, Justin recorded and released his second album, Flor Peeters: 35 Miniatures, adapting the collection of short organ works written by the Belgian composer for a variety of vintage and modern synthesizers. A year prior, Justin released a collection of original compositions on his debut solo album, Secret Place. Influences range from Miles’s albums from the late ’60s to Wendy Carlos’s Switched on Bach to Michael Jackson’s collaborative efforts with Quincy Jones. Justin also plays in a bunch of other groups, most notably Snarky Puppy, with whom he has traveled in crowded vans and slept on questionable floors since 2006.
About the concert
Justin will play piano, keyboards, and trumpet with and without additional musicians in order to execute spontaneous reimaginings of material from his two solo records, but occasionally he will do his best recreate the recordings as faithfully as possible.
