Dorian May

Instrument: Piano | Location: Santa Rosa

Born: April 28, 1957

Dorian May’s piano artistry shapes together classic, modern and Latin jazz with Bach harmony, world and poly rhythms and he is equally at home in world music and classical music as he is with hard-swinging bebop, Cuban Salsa and down-home blues. At his shows you may hear anything from classical to TV/movie themes, children’s tunes, traditional jazz, folk songs to Cuban boleros.

His diverse collection of influences include a degree in classical piano performance, keyboardist in a touring Emerson, Lake & Palmer tribute band, high-school band director, world percussionist/accompanist at world music and jazz festivals and currently leader & arranger for several Mendocino and Sonoma-county based jazz and Latin bands.
