Myra Melford

”From her first album in 1991, it was clear that this pianist and composer would stay around,” the New York Times said of Myra Melford. Melford has not only stuck around, but she has flourished. She has appeared on more than 20 recordings, including nine as a leader , performed in more than 30 countries, won major awards for composition and piano performance, and worked with some of the world's most innovative musicians. Melford's staying power is the product of ceaseless musical travels; she's always going somewhere. As Francis Davis noted , “Myra Melford is the genuine article, the most gifted pianist/composer to emerge from jazz since Anthony Davis.”
