Misha Piatigorsky

Misha Piatigorsky, winner of the 2004 BMI Thelonious Monk Composers Competition, is one of the most innovative pianists on the music scene today. His unique marriage of powerful melodies with intensely driving rhythms makes his sound a fresh voice that excites the heart and mind. Misha has produced many records both for himself and other musicians featuring his compositions and arrangements. He is the pianist and musical director for singing legend Mark Murphy, and can be found performing with him in New York clubs such as Birdland, Iridium, and Dizzy’s Coca-Cola Club, as well as internationally. Misha’s notable releases include the debut CD for Trio Del Sol, with guitarist Freddie Bryant and percussionist Gilad on Twinz Records, where the “piano and guitar create and exchange melodies like an intricate dance” (Bill Milkowski), and AYA, featuring his compositions. Misha’s new trio with bassist Hans Glawischnig and drummer Ari Hoenig is a fusion of urban grooves with his non-traditional jazz compositions, breaking down the boundaries between classical melodicism and popular rhythms. Their first record, Uncommon Circumstance, is being released in early 2007 to great accolades. Born in Moscow, Misha began his musical education at a very young age. After his immigration to the United States in 1981, Misha became an accomplished Jazz pianist, drummer, and composer. He earned his Bachelors Degree under pianist Kenny Barron, and his Masters Degree at Manhattan School of Music, having been awarded a full scholarship.
