Join us for our next Harlem Speaks on the Road discussion hosted by our Senior Scholar, Loren Schoenberg as he interviews jazz pianist, Danny Mixon and discusses his career highlights and his legacy.
Jazz pianist Danny Mixon, born in 1949 in Harlem, started off as a tap dancer. He attended New York City’s High School of Performing Arts with dance as his major, but soon switched to playing the piano after being inspired by visits with his grandfather to see jazz artists playing at the Apollo Theater. Over the course of his long career, Mixon has performed with jazz greats including Betty Carter, Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers, Pharoah Sanders, Joe Williams, Frank Foster, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Charles Mingus and Lionel Hampton.
