Primary Instrument: Piano

Pianist Jeff Lashway hails from Pittsburgh -- While he has played, toured and recorded with several artists, he is best known for his tenure with jazz legend Maynard Ferguson. Jeff was Maynard's final pianist. On his first release, “Reunion,” he is reunited with longtime friend Vinnie Colaiuta. This is a rare straight-ahead session for Vinnie. Also on board is the amazing vocalist Jimmy Hall, formerly the lead singer with Wet Willie. This is an incredibly accessible, swinging CD, with stellar performances by all the musicians, including Jim Rotondi, John Allred and Jeff Rupert.

”Jeff Lashway's playing gives the impression that he draws sounds and wonderfully improvised lines right out from the keyboard. He has that kind of touch and awesome Oscar-worthy technical chops. With his swing (”One by One”), comping sensitivity (”Quintessence,” showcasing the deep sound of Ferguson cohort Jeff Rupert), and soul (”Gingerbread Boy” and the slickly reworked “Airegin”), Lashway rises to this recording occasion and delivers.” --- All About Jazz
