Diane Moser has been a featured performer and composer throughout the U.S. with jazz ensembles, big bands, orchestras, chamber music ensembles, dance companies, and theater companies. She earned a B.A. from Empire State College in New York and an M.M. in Jazz Piano from the Manhattan School of Music, where she studied with Harold Danko and Jaki Byard.
“Moser is a sublime and powerful musician who has the innate ability to draw things out of expert players that you haven’t heard them do before... The pianist has a complete and focused command of the instrument that allows her to blur the distinctions between the kinetic-energy of “outside” playing and the more lyrical propulsion of “inside” music. At the center of it all is a remarkable mastery of rhythmic dynamics.”Robert Bush, San Diego Reader, July 22, 2012
