Jean-Michel Pilc"His densely harmonic reinventions of standards you thought you knew clearly shows a musical genius at work."
Eric Brace, The Washington Post"A dazzlingly inventive pianist."
Nate Chinen, The New York Times
"Jean-Michel Pilc belongs right in the front row."
John Fordham, Guardian Unlimited (UK, **** review)
"One of the astounding jazz piano trios of the past decade."
Don Williamson, Jazz Review
Consistently heralded by critics as one of the most original composers in his field, altoist Rudresh Mahanthappa's prolific contributions to contemporary jazz have earned him a Guggenheim Fellowship, commissions to create new work from the likes of the Rockefeller Foundation MAP Fund, Chamber Music America and the American Composers Forum, and a win in the 2011 Downbeat international Critics Poll. His rare ability to synthesize South Indian music concepts with a seemingly boundless range of unexpected influences frequently characterizes him as one of the most important artists in the music today -- a distinction the Jazz Journalists Association recently echoed by naming him Alto Saxophonist of the Year three consecutive times from 2009-2011.
