Richie Beirach: Sea Priestess

Pianist Richie Beirach has been a foundation of the jazz community since the '70s, having released over 70 albums through 2022. His style combines romanticism with a dissonant compositional flair. His music, usually expressed in solo, duet and trio formats, sounds exceptionally intimate. Beirach could create chemistry with most anyone and has collaborated with luminaries such as saxophonist Dave Liebman, pianist Andy LaVerne and guitarist John Abercrombie. "Sea Priestess," with bassist George Mraz and drummer Jack DeJohnette, epitomizes the beauty of Beirach's work.
