One could easily imagine that Erik Deutsch lives inside a piano.  Thus it’s no surprise that some of the world’s most in-demand performers request Deutsch for their keyboard accompaniment. If they’re lucky, they can catch him in the rare moments when he’s not leading his own group through a truly modernist take on the jazz tradition.

Having first come to prominence as a member of the funk-jazz collective Fat Mama (with drummer Joe Russo), Deutsch has taken his talents across the globe to play with some of the finest musicians alive.

Born in Washington D.C. but currently living in Brooklyn, NY, Deutsch exists in many musical worlds, touring and recording with pop artists like Norah Jones, Rosanne Cash, Citizen Cope and Shooter Jennings as well as with jazz artists like Charlie Hunter, Theo Bleckmann and Ben Allison.

Deutsch holds the distinction of being the only keyboardist to tour regularly with 7-string guitar master Charlie Hunter. From 2007 to 2009,  Deutsch toured and recorded two albums as a member of Charlie’s trio.

This Dazzle Jazz performance will feature pianist Erik Deutsch, guitarist Avi Bortnick, bassist Jeff Hill, drummer Tony Mason, trumpeter/vocalist Jon Gray, saxophonist Jonathan Stewart, and guest vocalist Victoria Reed.
