Adam Shulman

Adam Shulman has been a staple of the San Francisco Jazz scene since he moved to the city in 2002. Before the move, Adam was a student at UC Santa Cruz where he studied with the great Smith Dobson and the trumpeter/arranger Ray Brown. He received his degree in classical performance under the tutelage of the Russian pianist Maria Ezerova. Currently, Adam plays regularly with Marcus Shelby in large and small group contexts and with Anton Schwartz mostly in a trio setting. He can also be seen as a sideman with countless bay area musicians and vocalists such as John Wittala, Vince Lateano, Kitty Margolis, Andrew Speight, Dayna Stephens, Ian Cary, and Mike Zilber....

About “On Second Thought”

Pianist Adam Shulman composes strong melodies with lingering qualities, highlighted by supportive rhythmic and harmonic foundations. Never meandering, there is a consistently logical flow to each piece. As a soloist, Shulman swings hard, exudes confidence and takes chances, while never veering too far off course.

Shulman’s introspective approach to playing and composing has the potential to reach a wide-ranging audience while remaining mindful of artistic integrity.

-John Barron, Jazzreview.com

“With On Second Thought, the Adam Shulman Quartet breaks through with its first CD, a selection of thoughtful and eminently accessible originals by leader and pianist Shulman. It features eight melodic compositions, melding perfectly the group's talented musicians, which include Dayna Stephens on alto, John Wiitala on bass and Jon Arkin on drums.”

“The two” (Dayna Stephens and Adam Shulman) “wonderfully complement each other, piano and sax weaving in and out of often contrapuntal, melodic configurations. Assuredly backing them are Wiitala's bass and Arkin's drums.

After this, one looks forward to Shulman's next release.”
