If you’re not familiar with Dave’s legendary music, listen to a sample here:
Pianist, composer, and educator Dave Meder is becoming one of the prominent artists of his generation, known for a panoramic, genre-inclusive approach that has earned him slots in the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Piano Competition and the American Pianists Awards. His latest album, Passage, was counted among the top five jazz debuts in the Ottawa Citizen, as well as the “Favorite Jazz Albums of 2019” from All Music Guide, for its balancing of “post-bop harmonies with soulful gospel warmth and contemporary classical sophistication.” Indeed, Meder’s defining aesthetic is his remarkably postmodern sense of stylistic adventure, incorporating what All About Jazz describes as “a vibrant hybrid of the whole American spectrum.” His works have won various competitions and commissions, including the ASCAP Young Jazz Composers Award, the International Songwriting Competition, and the FirstMusic Commission of the New York Youth Symphony. His performances have headlined stages at Jazz at Lincoln Center, Smalls Jazz Club, The Kennedy Center, and internationally in Beijing, Tokyo, Sao Paulo, and others. Meder currently holds the rank of Assistant Professor of Jazz Piano at the University of North Texas, one of the nation’s most renowned jazz studies programs. Dave Meder is a YAMAHA Artist.
