Tivon Pennicott, a Marietta, Georgia native, “self-assured tenor saxophonist” (The New York Times) and two-time Grammy Award winner, has performed and recorded with Kenny Burrell, Esperanza Spaulding and Gregory Porter. He makes his first Spivey Hall appearance with his new quartet featuring pianist Sullivan Fortner.
Pennicott’s unique style incorporates his masterful attention to rhythm, tasteful melodic lines, and his deep understanding of the importance of the groove, with musical maturity extending far beyond his years.
“A series of unaccompanied filigrees at song’s end, cyclical-sounding like minimalism and played so quietly you could hear the instrument’s keys move,
was tremendous” (JazzTimes)
