Two GRAMMY Award nominations for Best Instrumental Composition and Best Instrumental Jazz Solo confirm that pianist Taylor Eigsti has transcended his jazz prodigy status to become, as David Benoit raves:
“An absolute monster of ideas and formidable technique.”
“He’s the most amazing talent I’ve ever come across.” ~ Dave Brubeck
Taylor Eigsti, piano Eric Harland, drums Harish Raghavan, bass
As a leading drummer on the national scene, Eric Harland performs with jazz legends and records prodigiously. Eric claimed Downbeat’s top spot as Rising Star Drummer in the Annual Critics Poll for the third straight year.
Harish Raghavan records and plays with some of the most forward thinking musicians around. “Harish is a bass player whose reputation for musicality, musicianship and professionalism is taking a firm hold on the New York scene. Cat is solid, man.” ~ Kurt Elling
“Eigsti and company succeed in their mission to escape the ordinary world through high art.”~ Downbeat Magazine
A cash bar will be available.
