This was pure joy: hanging out with the master jazz pianist, Jean-Michel Pilc, in his Brooklyn home. Speaking about music, he illustrated his ideas by playing compositions, improvisations and even a Chopin waltz.
We recorded this session for WKCR’s musician show to be broadcast in New York City, Wednesday Oct 22nd at 6pm on 89.9 FM-NY and stream at www.wkcr.org. Later in that broadcast, guitarist Coyote Anderson will perform live with his quartet.
Jean Michel Pilc has been described as a “musical genius” by the Washington Post and “dazzlingly inventive” by the New York Times, he’s worked with the greatest musicians in the world from Roy Haynes to Harry Belafonte with whom he served as musical director.
“Coyote Anderson has quickly become regarded as one of the most promising up-and-coming artists in New York, both as a guitarist and a composer. As a member of the BMI Jazz Composer’s Workshop he has honed his compositional & arranging voice, which has culminated into a recording project and the formation of The Coyote Anderson Quartet.
