Jazz pianist and composer Taylor Eigsti began an illustrious career early on. Considered a musical prodigy, Eigsti released his first album at age 14. Now with seven albums and two Grammy nominations, Eigsti is an established presence on the jazz scene.

Sensitivity, confidence, and innovation distinguish his playing, and his style is regarded for its rhythmic control, light touch, and improvisations that sustain and enhance the musical narrative. Taylor Eigsti redefines what jazz piano can be to outstanding effect.

In his own words

“I feel comfortable to let people see me develop over time,” says Eigsti. “I don’t want to save my music up until I’m a certain age. I feel I’m ready to go out there and do it right now.”

“The heart of what makes jazz music great is exactly what will sustain it through time. It’s about finding joy in interacting with other artistic voices while trying to create something that is intriguing and entertaining to listen to. That is jazz at its best, no matter the style of it.”
