About the event

Even amidst the expansive, treasure-laden, and epically consequent discographies of Chick Corea and Gary Burton, Crystal Silence stands out as a lightning-strike encounter. Released in 1973, the album introduced a partnership that exemplified how the deepest jazz could also be guileless, wide-eyed and exuberantly playful.


Juilliard-trained pianist Nate Sparks and Kyle Athayde, a gifted vibraphonist from Orinda who studied trumpet at Manhattan School of Music, bring their abundant skills and vivid imaginations to Crystal Silence’s beloved tunes by Corea and Steve Swallow.


A multi-instrumentalist who also performs on piano, bass, bass clarinet, drums and sundry percussion, Athayde hails from a musical family and has thrived bicoastally as a composer, arranger, teacher, and bandleader best known for the Kyle Athayde Dance Party, his stylistically omnivorous big band.


The Iowa-raised Sparks shares many affinities with Athayde, including impressive trumpet chops and leadership of the 18-piece Nate Sparks Big Band. A prolific composer, he’s received commissions from Bobby Sanabria and the Multiverse Big Band, Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks, and Arturo O’Farrill’s GRAMMY-nominated MSM Afro-Cuban Orchestra.
