Brian Murphy

I am a pianist/arranger/composer originally from Canada and currently based out of Miami Beach, Florida. I have recorded and performed extensively in Canada, the United Kingdom, Italy, Germany, Finland, Japan, and the U.S. with many renowned Jazz artists including Wynton Marsalis, Harry 'Sweets' Edison, Buddy DeFranco, Diana Krall, Paquito D'Rivera, Bob Berg, Dave Liebman, Woody Shaw, Sheila Jordan, Nigel Kennedy, Dena DeRose and Duffy Jackson and Blues greats Jimmy Witherspoon, Albert Collins and Eddie 'Cleanhead' Vinson.

I collaborated with the great Tito Puente as arranger/keyboardist on a number of award winning Latin Jazz albums including Goza Mi Timbal a.k.a. Dig My Timbales (Grammy & American Film Institute awards 1990), Out of This World (AFIM award 1991), Mambo of the Times (AFIM award 1992) along with Master Timballero, The Billy Strayhorn Songbook and Hot Timbales. My arrangement of Straight No Chaser (from Goza Mi Timbal) appears in Rebeca Mauleon's 'SALSA GUIDEBOOK ' as a reference for converting a non-clave melody.
