Here is a biography of Tom Grant:

TOM GRANT, master instrumentalist, talented singer and natural entertainer nimbly walks the line between jazz tradition and modern pop. This soft-spoken Oregon natives inspired songwriting produces propulsive R&B grooves, infectious melodic hooks, and stylish ballads with equal ease. He plays jazz piano with the harmonic sophistication and deep sense of swing that only comes from more than four decades on the bandstand. As one of the Pacific Northwests most renowned musical artists, Tom Grants career achievements reflect his unique ability to embrace the full spectrum of contemporary music.

Born to show business parents, Tom was at home with many musical instruments, but always returned to the piano. At a tender age, he was taught to play piano and drums by his vaudevillian/tap dancer father. Later, he learned about music styles listening to music at his fathers record store in Portland, Oregon. His brother, himself an accomplished jazz pianist, introduced him to the many different facets of the jazz life.

After graduating from the University of Oregon and a short stint as a high school teacher, Tom answered his musical calling. Native American saxophonist Jim Pepper took Tom to New York in 1970 to do a recording project that included the chant classic Witchi Tai-to. That album (Peppers Pow-Wow, Embryo Records) featured Tom with jazz stars such as Bill Cobham (drums) and Larry Coryell (guitar).

During the 70s, Tom played with jazz luminaries like trumpeter Woody Shaw, saxophonists Joe Henderson and Charles Lloyd. His most life-changing gig was with drummer Tony Williams who himself transformed the 1960s Miles Davis Band both musically and commercially into a worldwide jazz phenomenon. With Tony and bassist Patrick OHearn, Tom recorded and toured worldwide from 1978-1980.

In the 80s and 90s Tom was considered by many to be the father of the Smooth Jazz sound, recording albums on major labels including Verve, Shanachie and Windham Hill. Several of these shot to number one on the Smooth Jazz charts.

Tom has appeared on the Jay Leno show and was featured in many of the national music mags as well as in a CNN news spot. Hes also enjoyed large followings in Indonesia and Japan.

It is his touch that gives depth and clarity to rich tonal colors; his touch that draws from the piano an individual voice.
Lynn Darroch, KMHD Radio

Toms sound has an elegance and clarity that is the hallmark of his playing.    
Jeff Lorber, Grammy winner, Jazz Artist

In his hometown of Portland, Tom works tirelessly for a number of charities. Over the past thirty years,  his music has been a staple of homegrown giving for several non-profits. He was one of the original pianists of the Ten Grands concerts in Portland and Seattle, an annual event supporting music education.  Tom also organizes an annual concert for a non-profit that feeds disadvantaged people.

Grant writes and records new music on his own label, Nu-Wrinkle Records. His songs can be heard on popular TV series, both network and cable, and is still releasing new music on his own label called Nu-Wrinkle Records.
