We are proud to present the ONLY Florida appearance this season by the internationally acclaimed virtuoso jazz pianist Eldar Djangirov. He will be joined in this intimate concert performance space by his recording and touring band mates Armando Gola who played bass on Arturo Sandoval’s Grammy winning “Rumba Palace” and University of Miami graduate Ludwig Afonso (drums). This trio is well known to international jazz audiences from major festivals, concerts and recordings, including the 2013 album, “Breakthrough“ which was released to critical acclaim for its infectious array of standards and originals.  

Eldar is rightly compared to Art Tatum and Oscar Peterson, and is universally recognized for his stunning keyboard mastery and beautiful sound that has thrilled critics and audiences throughout the world. Dave Brubeck, among others, hailed him as a young genius. Like all great jazz musicians he has his own distinct voice. He is instantly recognizable; always surprising and satisfying whether playing the blues, a classic ballad or an original up-tempo composition. He is great in a jazz club but even better in a concert hall.

Born on January 28, 1987 in the former Soviet Union, Eldar began piano lessons at age 3 and it became quickly apparent that he possessed a special musical gift. At 10 years old the family moved to their new hometown of Kansas City, Missouri where he immediately gained the attention of the jazz community. At 12 he appeared as a featured guest on Marion McPartland's NPR Radio Show “Piano Jazz”. Two albums followed and at age 17 he signed as a Sony recording artist with albums that featured such greats as Roy Hargrove, Michael Brecker and Chris Botti.

Eldar has appeared at Jazz Festivals all over the world - the Hollywood Bowl, and Carnegie Hall to name a couple. He has been seen on national TV including the 2000 and 2008 Grammy Awards (of which he was a nominee), Late Night with Conan O'Brien, and Jimmy Kimmel Live. The virtuoso pianist has also performed with the Russian National Orchestra and San Diego Symphony. A solo classical album, Bach/Brahms/Prokofiev, was recently released.

After the Crest Theatre performance the Trio travels to the Atlanta Jazz Festival on May 24th before returning to their international touring schedule.
