About Me

Eli Yamin is a jazz and blues pianist, producer, educator and Steinway artist. His recent CD I Feel So Glad with The Eli Yamin Blues Band features classics like “Hound Dog” and “I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free” and the first commercial release of Eliʼs anthem, A Healing Song. Eli has completed three world tours as a cultural ambassador for the U.S. Department of State and has performed and taught at the Obama White House. He co-founded The Jazz Drama Program, which creates, records and licenses original jazz musicals for children to perform for their peers. He is also head of instruction at the Middle School Jazz Academy and training specialist at Jazz at Lincoln Center. His most recent recordings are You Canʼt Buy Swing with his jazz quartet and Noraʼs Ark, the jazz musical with his jazz quintet and the Grammy award winning Brooklyn Youth Chorus.
