Anne Sajdera

As a pianist, composer, bandleader and accompanist, Anne Sajdera is a creative force whose music encompasses an unusually far-flung array of traditions. With musical roots spanning the globe, she melds American and Brazilian jazz to her training in European classical music, creating an utterly personal sound that’s melodically verdant, harmonically sophisticated and rhythmically compelling.

A regular Bay Area presence since 2001, her trio depicts the unique flexibility of the piano trio format with virtuostic arrangements of Brazilian and American repertoire as well as original compositions. Co-produced by Ray Obiedo and released by Bijuri Records in 2012, her first CD project, Azul, highlights her exquisite touch, rhythmic acuity, and melodic resourcefulness. The project received a place on one of JAZZIZ Magazine's 2012 Top Ten Critic's Polls, Latin Jazz Corner's Great Latin Jazz Albums from 2012 and features the legendary percussionist Airto Moreira, among others. With the dynamic rhythm section pair, Gary Brown (bass) & Deszon Claiborne (drums), the trio is currently performing in and around the San Francisco Bay Area.
