Race to Justice: Jon Batiste

Portrait of Jon Batiste

The Granada Theater

With his “virtuoso chops and capacious personality” (The Boston Globe), Jon Batiste “whips up excitement” (The Wall Street Journal) as the leader of the rip-roaring jazz-roots collective Stay Human, igniting the music world – and your TV – as Late Night with Stephen Colbert’s house band. The Juilliard-trained jazz and R&B multiinstrumentalist has forged his own artistic path, from his particular brand of New Orleans-infused funk and pop to his eloquent solo album Hollywood Africans. Following his life-affirming Santa Barbara debut in 2019, Batiste is back, pounding the keys in a high-octane night of pure musical joy.
