with the John Toomey Trio
Born in Chicago, as a third generation musician Milton Suggs recognized music as a gift from a young age. It was much later that he began to accept it as a calling. Beginning as a pianist and later incorporating voice, Suggs began his journey in his hometown of Chicago and further honed his craft and developed his artistic vision in New York. Suggs's voice and approach to music are a reflection of the many great voices in Black music and culture from the past century and beyond. It is the music, spirit, struggles, triumphs, and stories of the generations that preceded him that make up the foundation upon which his own artistry stands. Whether on stage or in studio, Milton Suggs embraces each opportunity to explore new creative terrain and to do his part in furthering this legacy. See him live on February 11.
