Tamir Hendelman Solo Piano: Porter, Monk And Dizzy Tribute at Boulder Piano Gallery
Tamir Hendelman is a phenomenonblistering technique, quick wit as an improvisor, and profoundly refined pianism. Born in Tel Aviv, Tamir began studying piano at age 6. Almost four decades later, Tamir commands the high ground as composer, arranger, educator and performer.
The Boulder Piano Gallery presents Tamir in concert- in an intimate solo piano setting with a great instrument.
Tamir famously drives the piano seats of the Jeff Hamilton Trio and the Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra. He serves on UCLAs jazz faculty. And he has burnished his career as the go-to arranger and accompanist for singersNatalie Cole, Roberta Gambarini, Jackie Ryan and Barbra Streisand among them.
As composer and leader, Tamir guides his own trio and has produced 2 acclaimed albums.
"One is reminded of the likes of Oscar Peterson, Chick Corea, and Keith Jarrett: an inventive genius coupled with a dynamism that lifts an audience to its feet by the shows conclusion."
(Glenn Rifkin, Artsfuse.)
"What increasingly distinguishes Hendelman is his gift for imaginative arranging. For one thing, he will compose an introduction that makes it difficult to predict what follows, but seems perfectly suitedeven organiconce the tune begins."
