Mark Eisenman

I'm a jazz pianist in Toronto who's originally from NYC. My latest Cd is a Quintet featuring Mark Eisenman (piano)

Pat Labarbera (saxophones) John Macleod (trumpet & flugelhorn) Steve Wallace (bass) John Sumner (drums) playing my original compositions.

I've been very active in the Toronto scene. I do a lot of accompanying gigs, playing in many bands. My reputation as a sensitive accompanist for vocalists seems to precede me. I also teach privately, and at York University. Please visit my web site for audio samples of my playing.

A few years ago I recorded with Jazz Drummer Jimmy Cobb, when he was at the IAJE in Toronto

'...he's a pianist of impressive idiomatic discipline, a bebopper in the swinging, mid-to-late fifties manner of the unsung Wynton Kelly and Sonny Clark, men who brought taste and technique to solos that were all snap and sparkle. Eisenman's contribution to this classic school is a comfortably controlled level of invention, not so facile as to seem merely practiced, or so giddy as to turn everything into a romp.” Mark Miller CD review of The Chant Mark Eisenman Unity/Page Rating ***1/2 Dec.18, 1997

”The T.O. pianist needs documenting as leader, though he's a sideman on many recordings.” CD Review-may 2, 1998 Geoff Chapman
