“after hearing armen nalbandian’s new cd, I can say that armen has found a personal voice in expressing a music that is so clearly a part of his soul. he brings to his improvisations and organization to his arrangements. he has a touch and playfulness reminiscent of thelonious monk , and a feeling of swing that is natural and easy.”
from swinging piano melodies to moody atmospheric prepared rhodes, armen brings a myriad of sounds for the listeners delight
