Ehud Asherie

Born December 20th 1979, he is a mainstay of the New York City jazz scene. He has been studying piano since the age of 7. In 1997 and 1998 he attended the jazz program at the New School University, studying privately with jazz piano player Frank Hewitt. He currently studies with classical piano teacher Jeff Goldstein. For two years he has been playing regularly at the renowned jazz club Smalls with his own trio, the Grant Stewart Quartet and the Neil Miner Quintet. He has also served as a rehearsal pianist for the Village Vanguard Orchestra. Still, at this early stage in his career, he has already performed with such notables as Peter Bernstrin, Joe Cohn, Billy Drummond, Bobby Durham, Frank Gant, Paul Gill, Jimmy Green, Dennis Irwin, Jimmy Lovelace, Joe Magnarelli, Bob Mover, Tim Pleasant, Ben Street and Mark Taylor. Since January 2000 he's part of Trio65 at the Rainbow Grill in New York City along with bass player Joseph Lepore and drummer Tommaso Cappellato.

The versatility and musical knowledge of Ehud Asherie are unusual for such a young pianist. His playing is inspired by pianists such as Erroll Garner, Thelonius Monk as well as by classical music. Ehud enriches his full melodic lines and complex rhythmic riffs with elements from his immense trove of musical quotes.
