Misha Piatigorsky bio:

Misha Piatigorsky, winner of the 2004 BMI Thelonious Monk Composers Competition, is one of the most innovative pianists on the music scene today. His unique marriage of powerful melodies with intensely driving rhythms makes his sound a fresh voice that excites the heart and mind. Misha has produced many records both for himself and other musicians featuring his compositions and arrangements. He is the pianist and musical director for singing legend Mark Murphy, and can be found performing with him in New York clubs such as Birdland, Iridium, and Dizzy's Coca-Cola Club, as well as internationally. Misha's notable releases include the debut CD for Trio Del Sol, with guitarist Freddie Bryant and percussionist Gilad on Twinz Records, where the “piano and guitar create and exchange melodies like an intricate dance." --Bill Milkowski Jazz Journalist Association.

Born in Moscow, Misha began his musical education at a very young age. After his immigration to the United States in 1981, Misha became an accomplished Jazz pianist, drummer, and composer. He earned his Bachelors Degree under pianist Kenny Barron, and his Masters Degree at Manhattan School of Music, having been awarded a full scholarship. Misha currently resides in New York with his wife and two children, where he is a sought- after producer and performer. He continues composing for films, small ensembles, and vocalists, and can be heard on the movie soundtracks of Chaos Theory, Pretty Persuasion, RX, and Danika.
