Pianist Tom McDermott at the Musical Offering
Tom McDermott is one of New Orleans premiere piano players and composers. He grew up in St. Louis, where he earned a Masters Degree in Music, wrote music journalism for the morning paper, and soaked up the sounds of ragtime and traditional jazz that flourished there in the 1960s and 70s. In 1984, spurred by his love of James Booker, Professor Longhair and Dr. John, he moved to New Orleans, a trip enabled by a gig at the Worlds Fair.

Tom is known for his eclecticism, and is just about the only New Orleans pianist to stretch from the mid-19th-century music of Louis Moreau Gottschalk to the funky New Orleans piano today. He has a great love of Brazilian music (17 trips there so far), the Beatles, European classical music, early Duke Ellington, and much more.

So far in 2017, Tom has a new duo recording with up-and-coming clarinetist Chloe Feoranzo and a newly-released compendium of limericks and sketches published by Sagging Meniscus Press.

Tom will kick off his appearance at the MO by performing his original accompaniment to the short silent film "One Week" by Buster Keaton.
