Next
Stage is pleased to present the Miro Sprague Quintet. Don’t miss this
opportunity for an evening of world-class jazz in the intimate and great
sounding Next Stage!

Miro Sprague is a brilliant jazz pianist and composer
known for his dynamic and passionate performance style and inspiring
creativity. Born and raised in Western Massachusetts and currently based in New
York City, Miro has toured the globe, leading his own trio and quintet and
working with jazz greats such as Matt Wilson, Greg Osby, Karrin Allyson and
Reggie Workman, among others. Miro was mentored by Herbie Hancock, Wayne
Shorter and many other jazz legends at the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz
Performance at UCLA, the world’s most prestigious jazz masters program.

Miro
has performed and recorded in a variety of settings since the early 2000’s and
in late 2013 he brought together four of his closest musical partners to record
his fourth studio album “Blue Dreaming”. Featuring tenor saxophonist Michael
Zsoldos, trombonist Eric Miller, bassist Marty Jaffe, and drummer Paul Wiltgen,
the quintet specializes in a melodic and engaging style of modern jazz,
brimming with creativity and group improvisation.

Each musician brings a unique improvisational style, technical virtuosity and
deep musicality to performances of original music and creative arrangements of
jazz standards.

“Miro Sprague is among the most talented young
composer/pianists of his generation. His grasp of harmonic complexity, subtle
pianistic touch, and communication skills enable him to play the spectrum from
traditional to free jazz, in settings from solo piano to ensembles of every
size. I look forward to hearing more from him.“ – Armen Donelian,
Pianist/Composer, Faculty, New School University Jazz Program
