David Arner

Pianist, percussionist and composer David Arner is a long time proponent of innovative music and spontaneous composition. A resident of New York’s Mid-Hudson valley, the Woodstock Times has hailed him as “one of the Valley’s most consistently inventive and stimulating musical improvisors.” Arner released his 1st CD, Solo Piano (Dogstar), in 2002. The album documents Arner’s ongoing series of spontaneous compositions for solo piano, both in concert and in the studio, applying his characteristic piano wizardry to a wide array of themes from mythology to the blues. Paul Elisha of Northeast Public Radio said of this CD that Arner “holds and transports listeners through the incredible maze of his seemingly unflagging imagination.” David Arner’s 2nd CD, Live from the Center (Dogstar 2005), features his solo piano music from one of his annual concerts at The Center for Performing Arts in Rhinebeck

It's unclear why anyone would desire the end result, but as the saying goes, “there are many ways to skin a cat." Setting aside the vivisection angle for a moment, there are countless approaches to the classic jazz piano trio. Ever since ragtime, boogie-woogie and stride pianists caught the attention of popular music listeners, jazz pianists ...

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
