Knoxville, TN: Starting August 2012, Music Arts Management will provide worldwide representation for the jazz keyboard player, composer, and arranger Yaron Gershovsky.

Already well-known as the long-standing musical director and pianist of the acclaimed vocal group The Manhattan Transfer, Yaron Gershovsky will work with Music Arts Management to present the Yaron Gershovsky Trio along with a series of newly-developed jazz education programs.

The Yaron Gershovsky Trio features Gershovsky’s compositions and keyboard playing along with experienced jazzmen David Finck on bass and Buddy Williams on drums. In 2011, the Trio released their second CD, State of Mind, to positive press reviews.

In addition to his international touring, Gershovsky will present The Art of Jazz Collaboration, a masterclass and lecture given in tandem with world-renowned vocalist Janis Siegel. In it, both artists share their insights on jazz ensemble performance and the elusive art of accompanying vocalists. Another educational project will be entitled The Role of the Musical Director: Jazz, The Manhattan Transfer, Broadway, and Beyond.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
