Denny Zeitlin
San Francisco-based jazz pianist Denny Zeitlin--aka Dr. Dennis Zeitlin, Psychiatrist--boasts a music career that spans more than fifty years. He began, at a tender young age, playing professionally in the early fifties in his home town of Chicago. He was, very early in his life, interested in the fields of medicine and music, and he has been able to navigate career paths in both disciplines with great success.

Zeitlin may be the king of multi-taskers. At 72 years of age, he still runs a full time Psychiatric practice in addition to his teaching duties at University of California, San Francisco, along with maintaining a vibrant jazz career that seems to be gathering steam. His interests include fly fishing and wine, and he is involved in a regimen of serious exercise, though he has replaced his twenty-five years of full throttle mountain-biking--in deference to the potential for a career-ending spill--with sixty to ninety minute running forays on Mt. Tamalpais, near his home.

AAJ Contributor Dan McClenaghan spoke with Zeitlin recently, about his new solo piano recording, Precipice (Sunnyside, 2010), juggling two careers and a planned return to the electronic wizardry of his soundtrack to film director Philip Kaufman's 1978 remake of Invasion of the Body Snatchers.
