Cyrus Chestnut — Return Of ‘The Nut Man’

Back it 2012, pianist Cyrus Chestnut came to KPLU and treated us to a live, solo piano studio session and a delightfully lively conversation. Recently, he did it again, only differently. Different songs and different stories with the same result as his earlier visit—a good time was had by all.

You’ll love all the songs and we think you’ll particularly like the story about the 9-year-old Cyrus begging his mom to buy him a Thelonious Monk album at Woolworth’s and then taking it to school for show and tell.
