Under the spotlights the shiny black Steinway concert-grand piano stood silently glistening as people poured into their seats.
Jazz pianist Taylor Eigsti was set to go on. Some knew that he was no stranger to Skidmore College, having occupied the piano chair a few years back in jazz drummer Eric Harland’s quartet as they played in the old Filene Recital Hall.
This time around, however, Eigsti would perform unaccompanied in front of the magnificent, all-glass backdrop of the Helen Filene Ladd Concert Hall within the Zankel Music Center.
