Michael Cochrane

These days, Michael Cochrane is a busy man. Having just completed his eighth CD as a leader on the Steeplechase label, the pianist/composer finds himself shuttling between Europe and the U.S. with “The Spirit of Life Ensemble.” Add to that calls for frequent side man duties in and around the tri-state area and it would appear that his career is reved up into overdrive.
