Graphy | The Art of Jazz by Tizaan Alphonso
Tizaan Alphonso is a Jazz/RnB pianist, singer and composer based in Maastricht, Netherlands. Having been a classical pianist for 15 years before switching to Jazz,he was exposed to a wide array of artists, right from Chopin and Mozart to Chick Corea and McCoy Tyner. This truly sparked his curiosity to go explore his creative side; just eager to improvise and express himself through Jazz! However, to sum him up as a musician, if Robert Glasper and Herbie Hancock had a child together, that would definitely be this dude! Together with his band he has created his own unique sound, combining broken beats and RnB music with some nice sassy Jazz fusion kicks at the right spots. His music is a true reflection of who he is as a person; fun, energetic and honest. He loves connecting with his audience at every performance promising the ultimate grooving experience! Tizaan was fortunate to share the stage with many great artists like Sheila Jordan, Ack van Rooyen, Carlo Nardozza, Angelo Verploegen and Bex Burch.
