Connie Han

Pianist and Mack Avenue recording artist Connie Han is a young lioness on a fast-climbing trajectory to jazz stardom with rave reviews from The New York Times, Jazziz Magazine, Downbeat Magazine, and more. According to Downbeat Magazine, Han has “already absorbed the post-bop piano masters” with “all the technical mastery she’ll ever need.” The New York Times describes her as “the rare musician with fearsome technical chops, a breadth of historical knowledge and enough originality to write tunes that absorb your ear easily.”

The 23-year-old has created an edgy blend of modern and traditional jazz with her incendiary Mack Avenue Records debut CRIME ZONE. Han explains, “This record is meant to be a statement about being rebellious but within the tradition.” Influenced by post-bop masters Freddie Hubbard, McCoy Tyner, and Kenny Kirkland, Han brings a fire, passion, and maturity that belies her youth. All About Jazz states, “With this album she’s booking a place as a star in the jazz firmament of tomorrow. Watch out for Connie Han, the face (and shape) of jazz to come.”
