Eric Zinman

Born 1963 and educated in Boston, MA USA, Eric Zinman began piano studies at age 7. At age 11 he sang in a boy's soprano choir in Donald Martino's opera THE DIVINE COMEDY in the 70's. He continued to sing in musicals and choirs throughout his childhood and teenage years and piano studies with Angel Ramon Rivera, and jazz with Paul Barringer, and Don Hemwall. As a teenager he says he discovered Black Music and became completely immersed in that approach. He met musician/composer Bill Dixon in 1981. Zinman considers this the turning point in his musical life. Mr. Zinman also speaks highly of his studies with musician/pianist/composer Naqi Qamar. He continued his studies of modern music at the New England Conservatory of Music with Ran Blake, Jimmy Giuffre, and George Russell where he received an MM degree in 1985.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
