David Berkman

A terrific pianist and composer, college professor, author, treasured sideman and vocalist's accompanist, and globe-trotting bandleader, David Berkman has been a mainstay of the New York City jazz landscape since arriving from Cleveland in 1985. As prolific as he is talented, Berkman's released five new CDs since 2011, including a solo piano set, a live album co-starring Tom Harrell, a disc of duets with Scottish saxophonist Laura Macdonald, and two sessions with The New York Standards Quartet. Berkman has yet another release due in April titled, "Old Friends and New Friends," and will likely make some great sounds with old and new friends this week in Minneapolis. He'll be working with three of Minnesota's finest jazz players, namely: Anthony Cox (bass), Brandon Wozniak (sax) and J.T. Bates (drums). Highly recommended! Tom Surowicz
