Pianist Myra Melford is one of the great post-Taylor players; she can play with incredible control on the keys, using scads of technical prowess to get the desired sound. The S.F. Bay Area is lucky to have her.
Ms. Melford's solo piano concerts focus on a new book of original compositions inspired by the artwork of her friend, the late Sacramento-based artist Don Reich (1931-2010), but often include some of her other works as well as arrangements of music by Ornette Coleman and Andrew Hill. She has performed this program at the Northampton Center for the Arts (as part of the World of Piano series) and the Guelph Jazz Festival. A studio recording entitled, Life Carries Me This Way, is planned for an October 2013 release on Firehouse 12 Records.
