|Recorded at TurtleStudios in Philadelphia, PIANADELPHIA is a celebration of fourteen pianists who live and work in the Philadelphia area. It is also a tribute to the history of Jazz in Philadelphia — the first great American art form, in the first great American city. Each pianist performs a composition by a legendary Philly Jazz artist, with many of the city's most accomplished players showcased alongside its more recent virtuosos.
"Like a set of fine China, Pianadelphia is characterized by its craftsmanship, delicacy and sheer beauty. Each musician shows himself to be an exquisite interpreter of the Jazz piano idiom, demonstrating how spontaneous variations of simple tunes can become memorable compositions in themselves." - AllAboutJazz.com
"Pianadelphia's great!! - Pat Martino
“ This project offers an opportunity for music lovers to appreciate and enjoy the composing skills of Philadelphia’s Jazz Legends, played by talented pianists.” - Jimmy Heath
