Jarrett Cherner

New York based Pianist, Composer, and Educator Jarrett Cherner was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. After completing degrees in Mathematics at Tufts University (2003, Summa Cum Laude, Phi Beta Kappa) and Jazz Piano Performance at the New England Conservatory of Music (2004), he returned to the west coast, becoming “one of the most exciting young pianist-composers on the Bay Area scene” (San Jose Mercury News, 2007).

While based in San Francisco, Cherner performed with the Marcus Shelby Jazz Orchestra, Collective West Jazz Orchestra, Travis Sullivan’s Bjorkestra, Kasey Knudsen Sextet, Fred Randolph Quintet, Terrence Brewer, Orquesta Bakan (among many others), and ran one of the city’s best weekly jazz jam sessions at Grant & Green in North Beach....

Awards

2005/2006 ASCAP Foundation Young Jazz Composer Awards, Honorable Mention.
“Cherner has established himself as one of the most exciting young pianist-composers on the Bay Area scene.”
-Andrew Gilbert, San Jose Mercury News, 8/07

“A lyrical player who sounds thoughtful even when playing an uptempo piece, Jarrett Cherner clearly has a bright future. His compositions are quite original (rather than being based on familiar chord changes), his improvising hints in spots at Bill Evans but is personal, and his interplay with his trio finds the three musicians often seeming to think as one.”
-Scott Yanow, LA Jazz Scene 1/07

“Cherner’s music tells a story. He moves suite-like through the works, pausing to change direction often. A portion of the program explains the Blues, while other sections interpret passionate ballad emotions or hard-driving soul. The album’s title track includes a lyrical conversation between piano and bass that speaks volumes through its adventurous foray and its ample spontaneity.”
-Jim Santella, Cadence Magazine, 11/06
