Dan Tepfer, Solo Jazz Piano

Dan Tepfer has made a name for himself as a pianist-composer of wide-ranging ambition, individuality, and drive—"a remarkable musician" in the words of the Washington Post and one "who refuses to set himself limits" in those of France's Télérama. The New York City-based Tepfer, born in 1982 in Paris to American parents, has performed with some of the leading lights in jazz, including extensively with veteran saxophone luminary Lee Konitz. As a leader, Tepfer has crafted a discogrphy already striking for its breadth and depth, ranging from probing solo improvisation and intimate duets to richly layered trio albums of original compositions. His 2011 Sunnyside/Naïve album Goldberg Variations/Variations saw the prize-winning pianist performing J.S. Bach's masterpiece as well as improvising upon it to "build a bridge across centuries and genres" (Wall Street Journal) in an "impressive feat that keeps coming back to a hearty and abiding respect" (The New York Times).
