Named a Steinway Artist in 2019, the pianist Connie Han exhibits her charismatic playing style in its full emotional range on Secrets of Inanna, Han’s third release on Mack Avenue Records — a dynamic musical portrait of the beguiling and mysterious Inanna, ancient Sumerian proto-goddess of Love, Beauty, and War.

With an interpretation that belies her age, Han’s expertise shines in the piano trio idiom. Paved by Chick Corea/Roy Haynes and McCoy Tyner/Elvin Jones, the timeless drum-piano tradition is explored in Han’s interplay with longtime collaborator/drummer Bill Wysaske. The two like minds and their combined chemistry has proven exceptionally fruitful in Han’s career, as Wysaske’s myriad contributions include concept development, production, composition, and arrangement on all three albums released by Mack Avenue Records.

Gustav Mahler once said, “Tradition is not the worship of ashes, but the preservation of fire.” With each upcoming performance and recording date, Connie Han continues to fulfill this axiom with tenacity and identity — standing on the shoulders of giants who have so deeply impacted her artistry.
